UPDATE: Congratulations to Twyla Harbick of Springfield, Oregon, the randomly selected winner of this giveaway. Our sincere appreciation to everyone who participated. Thank you for being a part of our community. If you like these books or have feedback about them, please let us know!


We’re celebrating the release of the newest book in the Beadweaving Master Class series: the spectacular Jill Wiseman’s Beautiful Beaded Ropes, a September 2012 release and already a No. 1 bestseller among beading books.

Here’s how we celebrate around here: We give things away. So it makes sense to me to give away a COMPLETE SET of the Beadweaving Master Class books. But how can I make it special for people who already have some or all the books? Hmm. Well, how about this: All the books are signed by their respective authors.

The Beadweaving Master Class books being given away are:
Diane Fitzgerald’s Shaped Beadwork (signed by Diane)
Marcia DeCoster’s Beaded Opulence (signed by Marcia)
Laura McCabe’s Embellished Beadweaving (signed by Laura)
Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery (signed by Sherry)
Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance (signed by Maggie)
Rachel Nelson-Smith’s Bead Riffs (signed by Rachel)
Japanese Beadwork with Sonoko Nozue (signed by Sonoko)
Sabine Lippert’s Beaded Fantasies (signed by Sabine)
Jill Wiseman’s Beautiful Beaded Ropes (signed by, you guessed it, Jill)

And, just so the lucky winner doesn’t feel like she or he is missing out on anything, I’m throwing in copies (unsigned) of three wonderful gallery books, filled with photographs of gorgeous beadwork:
Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry
Masters: Beadweaving
500 Beaded Objects

That’s a dozen books! As I mentioned, we realize that if you’re interested in this giveaway you might already have some of these creative-juice-stirring books in your home or studio. No worries: Enter anyway for fabulous holiday gift-giving opportunities. Or you can donate the books to your local bead society or library.

Also, people tell me sometimes they get frustrated: they enter a giveaway, forget to check who the winner is so the giveaway never really “closes” for them, and then later realize they’d forgotten to buy a book they really wanted. Easy solution: Click through and wishlist the books you’re interested in right now. If you don’t happen to win, you’re giving yourself a reminder. And if you do happen to win, you’re all set already!

How can you enter for a chance to win the set of 12 books? Leave a comment on this blog post by 9 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, October 17. Any comment counts as an entry, but I encourage you to write about what you see as the most exciting trend in beading or jewelry these days. That will be fun!

One winner will be selected at random and announced on October 24. Please “Like” the Lark Jewelry & Beading page on Facebook to be alerted to free projects and giveaways and to see digital pics of many fabulous jewelry and beading creations.
