Janice Berkebile and Tracy Stanley are two immensely popular teachers and designers, and I’m pleased to be doing a giveaway of a signed copy of their new (and already immensely popular) book, Making Wire & Bead Jewelry: Artful Wirework Techniques. The book is a May 2012 release, I’m writing this blog post on May 23, and we’ve already sold two-thirds of the book’s print run. So these first-edition books will soon be collector’s editions!

You can get a sense of the book, its fun and exciting projects, and its plethora of excellent how-to photos and detailed instructions by clicking over to this blog post, seeing some projects from the book, and downloading two free project PDFs, Tracy Stanley’s Cascading Spirals Bracelet and Janice Berkebile’s Wire Pod Pendant. If you don’t know Tracy and Janice, or even if you do, you can get a good sense of these wonderful creative partners by reading their interview of one another posted here.

Okay, the giveaway: How can you enter for a chance to win the book that’s signed very sweetly by both Janice and Tracy? Leave a comment on this blog post by 9 p.m. EDT on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28. Any comment will do, but why don’t you tell us what you enjoy about bending wire, if you’re itching to get started, or if you’re just curious.

Winning the signed copy would be a great bonus, of course, but in the meantime you can buy the book at your local bead store or bookstore or online at BN.com or Amazon (another idea: please go online right now and give the book a “Like” and add it to your wishlist). Then if you are the lucky winner, you can gift the extra copy to a crafty friend!
