Break the Rules — Get a Free Book!

April 01, 2014, 15:14 pm  Posted by Lark

No, no, no, I’m not suggesting you shoplift…or break any other rules like sneaking into a movie theater or peeing in a swimming pool. I’m talking about Diane Hyde‘s new book, Break the Rules Bead Embroidery—I’m giving away an advance copy to one lucky person!

This book releases in stores on May 2, and the creativity within its pages is gonna knock your socks off. Diane gives herself permission to include the the most innovative materials in her pretty bead-embroidered jewelry! We’re talking pen nibs, toys, spoons, old keys, brass hinges, guitar picks, mini bulbs–and that’s just a start! This book will inspire you and kick-start your imagination.

Getting in on the giveaway couldn’t be simpler. To be eligible, leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, April 7, 2014. One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. Click here for the official rules (don’t break those!). This giveaway is over; the winner is Nancy Ludvik. Happy beading, Nancy!

    I’m working on my first bead embroidery project. I’m not sure if a) I’m doing it right, b) if I’m hooked on it yet, c) what it will look like when done (if ever). :)

    I would LOVE to win this!!! DIY jewelry & accessories are my #1 hobby!!! I love to find great deals on supplies, discounted, broken, or defective jewelry that I can remake into my own unique pieces. Sometimes I’ll even take several pieces & combine them or use them in crafting home decor, clothing, hair accessories, costume pieces, etc… I am also into Belly Dance & Burlesque, so I love to create costume pieces for myself & fellow dancers!!! I am an avid jewelry collector & I love to express myself with accessories!!! The way I see it is that, you can never have too much jewelry & accessories!!

    Valuable info. Lucky me I found your website by accident, and I’m shocked why this accident didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.
