    I became interested in beading when I needed a hobby after leaving work to raise my son. Turns out I didn’t have as much time to fill as I anticipated … but I stuck with it. :)

  • Sarah S

    love herringbone stitch! and the kit looks awesome!

  • Mia Denman

    Herringbone has always intimidated me… this could be JUST what I need to get me over that hurdle! Pick me! Pick me!!

  • Linda

    I love the herringbone stitch and the kit is pretty. I would love to make it.

  • Brenda Shreves

    Such a beautiful author and beautiful jewelry also. Would love to win this kit and the book. Thank you for doing this. It would be great to have a complete kit that has everything you need to make one project start to finish. I’ve got many projects started and needing some little thing to finish..

  • Janice Chan

    I loved your flower peyote pendant. Will love your new book. Janice

  • http://www.facebook.com/deborah.tower.7 Deborah Tower

    Great instructor and very inspired mind. The pieces/designs she comes up with are mind-boggling!

  • Rose

    Always been drawn to beading but tried to avoid for years. Then someone left some beading magazines in a thrift closet and that was the end of it. Beaded ever since.

  • Susan

    I can do basic herringbone stitch but would love to expand my knowledge! Count me in, please.

  • Carole

    I got involved with beading totally by accident. I went into a bead store looking for something that would work for another craft, and by the time I finished looking around, I was hooked!

  • Lois Buhalis

    There have been beads in my life ALL my life, and beading on and off for something like 35 years. I really, truly jumped in in 1999/2000, though, when I discovered bead embroidery, and haven’t looked back since. I don’t know enough about herringbone, so this book would be very helpful to me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/thedixonchick Stephanie Dixon

    My Aunt Penny introduced me to beading. She always had beading books and magazines around her house and I couldn’t help but fall in love with all the sparkling beauties! I am so excited for Melissa’s book being published! She is such an accomplished designer! And I still love sparkly things!

  • Heather R

    I’ve always been a crafter – I transitioned from counted cross-stitch into beading – first by adding beads to cross stitch projects, then turning cross-stitch patterns into loom work. Within a year, I had almost as many seed bead colors as I did embroidery floss – and I found myself making simple bracelets.
    Now (2 decades later) I find that I can’t wait to dig into the latest RAW pattern that catches my eye.

  • Catherine King

    I came across beading while attending a class with a girlfriend who was scared to go alone. After quilting for over twenty years and using beads for dimension I figured why not…needless to say five years later, beading is my YOGA my girlfriend doesn’t bead and I bead non-stop. Herringbone is one of my weaker stitches while I teach RAW, Guord ( peyote ) and massive amounts of Bead Embroidery. I would look forward to devoting time to Herringbone and perfecting the technique.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sparklepretty Marla Gibson

    Ohhhh I would love this! I find Herringbone to be really challenging! I started beading by coming across a seed bead embroidery piece that Marci Abney had made while browseing on Etsy. It really really started an obsession!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=757066702 Terry Oostdyk

    I have always been an arts & crafts person, and with all of the beads & projects out there, I just had to learn!

  • http://www.facebook.com/kimberli.mcfate Kimberli McFate

    I want to try this!

  • Antoinette Fasano

    I began doing crafts when I was a child. My mom was a seamstress and always sewing house hold items, my clothes and even clothes for my Barbie and Ken one Christmas! I enjoy making jewelry for my friends.

  • Dawn Veree

    From being taught to crochet by my gram, to teaching myself beadwork of all kinds, I was born a crafter.

  • Julie M

    Melissa Grakowsky Shippee is a gifted designer and wonderful teacher. Whoever wins will be very lucky!

  • Lynn

    I’ve been bead weaving for a few years but have not attempted herringbone. This book looks like a good way to get started.

  • Judith

    I love herringbone. Melissa is a master in using this technique in her beadweaving.

  • Rachel

    I love peyote & right angle weave but have not attempted herringbone yet. I would love to try the projects in this book.

  • Jenny

    I would LOVE to win this book. Have admired Melissa’s work.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joann.loos Joann Loos

    I’ve been doing needlework since I was 5. But I got hooked on beading in 2003. My local bead store (Harlequin Beads in Eugene OR) had a trunk show and I picked up some lovely hematite beads. I strung them and then decided to go back and look at more beads.

    Even tho I’ve tried just about every technique using an needle and thread, beadwork is the one I can design in best. One of my first designs I ever made was published in Bead Unique. I’ve been in love ever since :D

  • S S

    I LOVE herringbone… this giveaway is super exciting- this is really my favorite technique!

  • Jehanni

    I got interested in beading as a child, and again/still as an adult I get a special thrill looking at something beautiful and thinking: “How do I make that? Can I make that? I can make that!” Love learning new stitches and new techniques.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1510746825 Laulo Darbas

    Oh what a beautiful giveaway ! I would be so happy to win this book and kit from the lovely Melissa. I ‘ve been inspired by her work since I began beading :) Thank you !

    All of us learn beadweaving at school on manual training. But most of
    us lose the enthusiasm with this kind of activity very soon. I have
    saved my passion for seed beads so far. I can’t remember the exact date,
    but I practice beadweaving for about 15 years. Some earliest works
    are still in jewelry box. Sometimes I take them out and look at them.
    Terrible sight! I show no one. It was so hard to buy seed beads that
    time, so I used Chinese seed beads from sewing shops and mother’s and
    grandmother’s old Czech seed bead jewelry. Maybe exactly mother’s
    passion to bijou passed to me. But she wears them, and I make. I rarely
    wear beads. And that is strange :)

  • Liz Hart

    I’d love to have this book!

  • Lin

    Love the giveaway. Thank you!

  • Anonymous

    About 15 years ago, a bead shop moved into my town. That was all it took.

  • http://www.facebook.com/donna.markle1 Donna Piskura Markle

    I was living in Las Vegas and walked into a bead store to see what it was all about…’nuff said…lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/roberta.n.siegel Roberta Naftulin Siegel

    I saw a gorgeous amulet bag years ago at a craft fair. It was about $350.00, so I said to myself “Hmmm, maybe I can do that.” It has taken some time, but I am learning all the beadweaving stitches and making some knockout jewelry. The amulet bag will have to wait, too many fun necklaces to make.

  • Zan

    A book and a project giveaway? Wow! This looks like a wonderful book to learn from and be inspired by. Thank you for offering this giveaway!

  • http://www.facebook.com/sherry.bunch.7 Sherry Bunch

    I have always had a spark for any kind of artwork.I did a lot of Gourd art, from carving to stitching to painting them. I have also beaded gourds. I thought I should try to learn more beading stitches to compliment my Gourd art but the serenity of beading stole my heart in a different way. I still love my gourds but beading now holds a special place in my love of art.
    Thanks for letting me share.

  • http://www.facebook.com/beth.dewey.39 Beth Dewey

    This looks to be a good addition to my bead book library. My first beads were a gift of wood and wire when I was almost 6. Mom said I always kept myself busy. The 60′s and the daisy chains were the first bead weaving I learned and everybody got daisy chain bracelets and necklaces. The latest incarnation was sparked in the early 90′s when I needed something small to keep me occupied while living briefly in Bogota Columbia. I’m a bead addict – I can’t lie about that. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Cindy L

    I got into beading because I wanted a mother’s bracelet, but they were fairly expensive. I have done crafts all my life, so I thought I could make my own bracelet. I made a few mistakes, but I kept the bracelet as is and didn’t re-do it. I still love it!

  • Yulia Odnosteblitsa

    Would love to have this book as I got hooked on beading about 4 years ago…it started from an elk figure on wire that I made as a part of xmas decoration and then bead by bead it went into making jewelry.

  • ardentbeader

    I love to bead, and absolutely love the sinusoidal necklace. I have not done many projects with herringbone, and this kit and book will change that for me!

  • Tami

    I love the necklace and woul
    d love a chance to have the kit.

  • Jeannie

    I can’t believe there’s a beading book I don’t own!

  • wordygirl

    I am not a beader, but my best friend from grade school is. She learned from her cousin, and has since taught her mother. Beading seems to be one of those arts that its artisans can’t resist passing on.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=756349466 Denise Gillitzer Uttke

    I would love to win the contest for the Sinusoidal Necklace kit and book by Melissa! She is very talented! I am at home recovering from spinal fusion surgery and sitting is the most painful position at this time. I have brought out my beading to help allow me to sit for longer periods of time while also taking my mind off of the pain. Beading is wonderful therapy! I would love the chance to make that Sinusoidal necklace! I have seen it in person when I met Melissa at a bead show in recent years and I can tell you that the picture doesn’t do it proper justice.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Susan-Jaisle/100002683944412 Susan Jaisle

    This is awesome!! I began beading as a young girl. My first real beading came when I took a class with Carol Ohl. Now I’m a bead addict!! And I love Melissa’s work and have made a lot of her patterns!!

  • Joyce Mayer Clark

    I love Lark Jewelry & Beading and Melissa Grakowsky! I started beading about ten years ago when I found 2 bead stores within 5 miles of our vacation home. My first project was a 3 dimensional bead woven dragonfly.

  • Valerie

    I was about 22 when I came across my first beading store. I had a bad break-up with a boyfriend and I needed to find something to occupy my time since he pretty much was my whole life. My mom told me that I should try a beading class at a local bead store where I live. I wasn’t exactly sure what beading even was but I knew that I LOVED jewelry, so I decided to give it a shot. My first class was a beginners class to making wire earrings. I loved the fact that I went home with two pairs of new earrings.. however, wire wasn’t for me. I went back to the beading store to check out some other classes and came across a “Bead and Button” magazine…. with was from this magazine that I learned how to beadweave. I LOVED it! I love learning all stitches and I love using any kind of Swarovski Elements! Since then I have been a beader and do not plan on ever stopping. The best part is seeing my friends faces light up when I give them gifts for birthdays and holidays as well as the great new jewelry I get to wear! :) I love the herringbone stitch and would love to have an autographed copy of a new book by an awesome beader/jewelry designer!

  • Debbie Nutt

    I met Melissa last year October when we had our first Beaders in Paradise in Nassau, Bahamas and took a class with her and I was totally impressed with what she had showed us. I loved the class and the bracelet we made. I was sorry due to my husband having a heart attack I was unable to do her classes this year but I still got my packets from her and have done some of them already and everyone that I have done I am totally impressed with and have received such wonderful compliments on them. I would love to get an autographed copy of Melissa’s new book with that fabulous herringbone stitch necklace on it. I would be honored to receive it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/marj.denton Marj Denton

    I love Melissa’s work and just missed taking a class with her in Oz this month due to work commitments. I would be honoured to received her book and kit to make the sinusoidal necklace.

  • Sharon Driscoll

    I became interested in beading becasue of my friend Susan. She taught me all the basic stitches as we drove together for many a class and during trips to conferences – such as Bead and Button. That first needle – on or first trip was all it took. I hooked, Enter me – please.

  • BRENDA DENSMORE

    Love to make things that you cant get just anywhere

  • http://www.facebook.com/nevart.fargnoli Nevart Fargnoli

    I am a self taught beader. I’ve never taken a class because $ was always too tight, and honestly, the internet taught me pretty much everything. I am so grateful to the people who take the time to share their knowledge. The first stitch I learned was Brick. After that, Peyote, and once I had that down I kept going until I learned all the stitches. I have my favorites, and I also have a few that I try to stay away from. Herringbone is one that I’ve stayed away from. Not because I couldn’t master it, but because I thought it’s use was limited. I was wrong. I didn’t have the vision to appreciate it’s versatility. Melissa’s designs have changed my mind about herringbone. Even if I don’t win, it’s ok, I’m going to buy her book anyway, someday. In the meantime, I’ll be happily playing with my beads, having learned not to take even a beadweaving stitch for granted.

  • Erin Dunn

    I became interested in beading when a friend sent me some Delica seed beads. I was in awe of these perfect little beads of a trillion colors and combinations. I searched high and low for projects to use my seed beads. I am, I suppose, a seed bead freak. :)

  • Sharon Ransdell

    I retired and moved to Oregon where one of my friends live. She is an avid beader and because of the beautiful pieces she created, I too wanted to learn to bead. That was about 7 years ago and I am still learning. I especially love Lark books and would love to win one on beading.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lori.tilly Lori Tilly

    I’ve been an artist for more years than I care to admit. I’ve done everything from oil painting, pastels, watercolors, quilting, knitting/crochet, sewing, stained glass, weaving, spinning, and finally realized that the things that I love about each of these media are putting together the colors. Jewelry is my consolidation of all these things.

  • BeadHostage

    another nice giveway…I can’t get enough of lark books…keep them coming

  • http://twitter.com/LisaSivart Lisa T

    I became interested in beading as a child when my Aunts taught me how to create my own daisy chain necklaces.

  • Jennifer91

    I found beading on my own as I wanted to try something new. Winning this giveaway would help me a lot. Thank you

    I’ve always been intrigued by beading. I grew up in the Caribbean and was exposed to beaded and other handmade jewelry from a young age

  • Kim Platt

    I became interested in Bedding by “Thistle Beads” store in Niantic, CT. Melissa has offered workshops. I am amazed at Melissa work and her expertise. I look forward to continue learning about beading and to be able to participate in some of the workshops. I also look forward to Melissa’s book and trying out some of the patterns. Kim Platt

  • kcisis

    Oh my goodness, the book would be a wonder birthday present for me, that would enable me to give lots of wonderful presents to friends & family in the future & the necklace would make a FABULOUS Christmas present (espcially for me!)

  • Kim

    I’ve gotten more and more interested in beading via Pinterest…im always seeing beautiful work and am thinking I’d like to try!

  • http://www.facebook.com/marie.waterman.9 Marie Waterman

    I worked for a friend who made jewelry many years ago, and she used beads to decorate fabric as well as put into necklaces. The amazing work in my Lark beading book of some years back inspired me to try new techniques.

  • Stephanie Riva

    I became interested in beading after my sister gave me a beautiful, handmade bracelet made out of seed beads and Czech pressed glass. I now know that the artist used right angle weave to make it.

  • Dona

    I first took a beading class through my needlework group. (After all, you do use a needle and thread.) It was an Amulet Purse class using tubular peyote. Not the easiest stitch for beginners! This must have been about 10 years ago. I kept buying beads and quickly stopped doing embroidery.

  • http://profiles.google.com/crocheter Barbara Grenier

    I admire the many items I have seen and been afraid to try. The kit might just be the ticket.

    wow, thank you sooo much for the opportunity to expand on my creativity!

  • Jardiniere

    I first delved into beading when I saw a photograph of the most beautiful necklace that I couldn’t afford, and I just had to give it a try. Now I’m addicted!

  • Brenda Shreves

    I would love to win this kit to kick start getting started on something. So many beautiful projects out there….hard to decide.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Denise-Feliciano/100000014381490 Denise Feliciano

    I really love learning how to do new projects necklaces are fun to wear

  • Chris White

    Thanks for the giveaway. Bead weaving is my favorite type of beading. Listening to music, getting lost in a complicated design, or one that is fairly simple, is the best therapy. I love a good challenge and would love to win to create something new and different.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1310919348 Lori Callahan

    I started beading when I got my first job out of high school in a bead shop in 1977.

  • Janeen Burlingame

    It all started with a tri-color gold locket from my one of my husband’s aunts who past away. I was taught how to wire wrap a necklace for the pendant and that was it, I was hooked. I started learning different techniques through classes or projects in magazines…beadweaving, wire wrapping, bead embroidery, Art Clay, metal stamping and metal smithing. I now feel naked without wearing something that I’ve made. Thank you for the generous opportunity to win your book and bead kit.

    I love herringbone stitch, and would love to win this give away! And it is great to have a kit already to make the project from the book, what a wonderful idea!

  • http://www.facebook.com/stacey.dowhowergibson Stacey Dowhower Gibson

    I first learned to bead because I wanted to make a gift. I had no idea what I was getting in to! That was about six years ago. Now I bead almost every day, and of all the stitches I use, herringbone is one of my top two faves.

  • http://www.facebook.com/deborah.karyakose Deborah Karyakose

    The herringbone necklace is so pretty! Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Cherry Chick

    My first career opportunity a million years ago was in a retail store that taught classes in beading, weaving, and needlepoint. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to learn about beading and teach classes in that first job. Eventually, I became the store manager/buyer and recall many a fabulous buying trips to NY to purchase merchandise for the store. It was a wonderful first job and launched me on my life long love for beading and jewelry. I’d be honored to have a chance to receive Melissa’s book and kit.

    I only recently became acquainted with herringbone stitch and I’m hooked.

  • Kayla @ TheEclecticElement

    I first got interested in beading when my previous high school math teacher who also suffered from a chronic illness took me under her wing so to speak when I first got sick and brought me to one of her support groups. The craft of the month was making jewelry. After my first stretchy bracelet, I was hooked :)

    That was nearly 7 years ago!

  • chowchillagal

    I started to bead as therapy for my triple bypass. I love the grace of the sinusoidal necklace.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kimsiebert66 Kim Siebert

    I was looking for a new hobby. The only beading I had ever done was the kits of Christmas ornaments you can buy at just about any store. So I went to the store, bought a book, beads, thread and needles and started beading !!!! That was over 2 years ago and the possibilities are endless !!! LOVE it !!!!!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Andra.L.Weber Andra Weber

    I started beading after my father died in order to get my Mother back into their stained glass studio. I think the beading was more therapeutic for me than her. I would love to win this collection, the book looks fantastic and the necklace is beautiful. Herringbone is one of the stitches that baffle me..

  • http://www.facebook.com/pestkaj Jessica Pestka

    Funny, I have been crafting so long I don’t recall a time I didn’t love beading!

  • Kay

    I’d love to win this. I’ve never tried this kind of beadwork. I got into beading because I couldn’t get my mom or DIL to make jewelry fast enough for me with the beads I was buying, so had to learn to make it myself.

  • Mary

    This is a beautiful piece, I would be the envy of my beading friends if I won.

  • Wanda S.

    I started beading by stringing simple bracelets, then saw a peyote-stitched amulet bag at a craft show. After going to a bead show, I came out with books, beads and have never looked back!

  • Cyndi N

    I began beading when a friend gave me a wonderful, one of a kind, lampwork bead. Been hooked ever since.

  • Beth P.

    I started beading around 6 years ago or so when my aunt suggested I give it a try as a hobby. I’ve been beading ever since and this book would be perfect to learn something new!

  • Suzi

    From a small child I was always attracted to tiny shiny objects. I recall sitting in my gravel driveway and being fascinated and mesmerized by the shiny mica. As I got older, beading came naturally. I’m always looking to improve my skills.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1115392815 Linda Roberts

    I love tiny things and I needed something I could easily transport and work on when we began traveling in our motorhome. That was 10 years ago and I still love my beads!

  • Catherine Taylor

    I had a full-time insurance job but in 2005 I came home to care for my husband who had a misdiagnosed blood clot and from negligence he lost his leg. This tragedy turned our world upside down. After several months of caring for him 24/7, I started beading as a way to cope and calm me. Beading has become my life now! From tragedy I’ve created a much prettier beading world. Winning this book would be wonderful!

  • http://www.facebook.com/julie.cresswell Julie Cresswell

    I started beading in ’98 and then shortly after, started my own online bead business. I ran that for about 6 years. I’ve taken a little hiatus from beading for awhile, but have just started to get the beads out again. I’d love to win this book, it would certainly whet my appetite!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1545995236 Cynthia Bourlier Williams

    I think it stemmed from my interest in vintage fashions, especially 1920′s era beaded purses and dresses.

  • Susie

    I had an old costume jewelry pearl necklace from my grandmother. I refashioned it into the sinusoidal necklace and it’s lovely. Now I can wear a little memory of my grandmother whenever I like!

  • Maria Hutzler

    A friend introduced me to bead- weaving, I thought it would be something that I would find tedious and need too much patience. I found out that it is quite the opposite, calming and rewarding. Would love to win the book, especially since my birthday is Nov 28th too!

  • Juanita Finger

    I broke a pair of earrings and figured I could repair them. I did and got hooked on bead-weaving. That was over 20 years ago.

    I became interested in beading about two years ago when I ran accross an expensive stretch malachite bracelet. I loved the color and had to have it but could not afford the hefty pricetag. I took a basic bead class at a local bead store and received such poor treatment I vowed to never return to that store. I then found out that there was a bead store about 1 hour away. I gave it a try and that is where I fell in absolute love with bead weaving. I met Jamie Boatwright who opened my eyes to the wonderful world of beading. I have been beading non-stop every since.

    I became interested in beading because of my Mom. She’s so passionate about it and so excited about every single bracelet or earring. I loved that she had such a beautiful passion and I think I was a little bit jealous. Her passion affect me and now once a week, we’re just sat all together with a cup of cacao and just talk and beading. I love this wonderful moments with art and love. Or with love to art. To me these are magic moments with my Mum that I will never forget and beside memoris we will always have wonderful jewelery to remember.

    It was 2 years ago, when I was looking for new hobby. I was passionate about cross-stitching and needling already and I felt that I want to try something new. I was just surfing on the internet and found beading. I was in from the first look. :)

    I first started beading when I was a kid. We have Native blood and were enccouraged to do our own beadwork for our rregalias. It’s something I enjoy to do.

    Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win.
