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!

    I like that bending wire can result in many different styles – - simple, classic, feminine, ethnic, etc.  There’s a lot of potential for creativity in wire designs.

    I am relatively new to wire wrapping and would love to win this book so I can get better at it.

    I have been making jewelry (love beads!) since the age of 14 (I’m 56) and just recently started learning to work with wire.  I bought a kit/book a couple of years ago while on vacation on Cape Cod and worked on getting better at the basics.  This St. Patrick’s Day I make my first wire work necklace – and it came out pretty good!  I’d like to win this book to get more ideas and expand my wire worked jewelry.

    Acrossman7 says:

    I love making jewelry of any kind. I love making little trinkets, pendents, and adding a little something to the other things I make. Wire is versatile and can be quite abstract! That’s why I love working with wire so much, can’t wait for this book!!

    margarita martin says:

    What’s not to like about bending wire? Especially when you add handmade lampworked glass beads to it.

I know she would absolutely love this book so I’m going to have a tough time deciding if I keep it myself or give it to her if I am lucky enough to win.

    Lu Ann Mueller says:

    I just went through the look inside feature of this book on Amazon, I’m impressed with the visual step-by-step instructions, bravo. I normally make fine art jewelry, but have taught craft jewelry via mini courses for adults at the Student Union of a local University. On the front cover of the book I would really like to know how to make the copper wire piece that has the two pliers on it. And absolutely would like to know how to make those wire rings on the back cover. Thank you for putting together this book, it’s always good to see a well presented how to craft jewelry making book, it gives me inspiration on how better to right a lesson plan, project ideas, and to let my students know which books will help them further their skills and joy in creating very nice craft jewelry.

    I am interested in this book and have it in by shopping cart, but an autographed copy would be so much better

    Tami Hergert says:

    I’ve watched people wirework and tried to copy but real instructions would help a lot. :-)

    Andrea Trank says:

    I started as a beader and said I would never do wire.  Hurt my hands too much, too hard to get things to look professional… on and on with excuses.  But ten years into my venture, I am loving wire.  I crochet beads with it.  I leave it exposed in many of my designs and now I am venturing into soldering. So needless to say, a wire working book would greatly contribute to my education.  Thanks for offering. Best, Andrea Trank http://www.heavenlanecreations.com   

    Sue G says:

    It’s been a very long time since I’ve worked with wire. I teach a beading class to seniors and would love to have a book to help refresh my memory and spark some creative juices for future projects that might be appropriate.

    Lisaglomski says:

    Wiring is my new found love.  It’s amazing what you can do with wire.  My friends and family love it and it’s great to do when traveling.
    Thanks for keeping me inspired…

    As a full time college student, making jewelry provides me with a diversion from classes and studying.  It is very soothing and calming for me.  I am always looking for new techniques and ideas to spark my imagination and creativity!  Thank you for the chance to win this wonderful collection of new techniques and ideas!

    I love the design freedom that bending wire gives me.

    As a full time carer for my husband i had lots of time on my hands, so I decided to help a UK charity for people with a rare nerological disorder called IIH. I am a sufferer of this condition and there is no known cure yet but IIH UK are working very hard on trying to raise funds so research can take place. I design and make jewellery for them to sell on their online store, which has proved very popular.  I would love to try wire work and if I won this book it would enable me to learn new techniques and design some more jewellery for IIH UK.

    Taina says:

    I would love to win this fabulous book to give as a gift.  I have a friend who was given a bunch of beads and wire from a lady who on longer makes jewelry.  She doesn’t have extra money to buy books or findings.  I loaned her a few of my books and she was in heaven so I know she would love to have one of her own.    

    Hello.  I am in Australia and am so grateful to be given this opportunity to win one of these books.  I have done a little bit of wire wrap work in the past but would love to know how to do more.  My nephew has recently asked me to teach him how to make jewellery pieces so this would be a wonderful tool to share with him.  Thank you, Jennifer B.

    What a cool book, i love seeing new stuff and learning new things… I love to play with wire…

    Jenn Colgan says:

    I’m definitely interested in learning this technique! I just started doing hand stamped jewelry, and would love to branch out into actually making some pieces.

    Ninja55_hayabusa55 says:

    I have been making jewellery since i was very young from beads to platnum wedding bands and have tried wire wrapping a few times and have never been successful having read all the reviews online of this amazing book i think it would really help me finally get a grasp wire wrapping and expand my range in my jewelly making skills

    Connie Keck says:

    I would love to make the Cascading Waterfall Gems Pendant, it is beautiful.

    Tinahineslucas says:

    I started bead stringing 2-1/2 years ago. Six months ago, my sister and opened a small hand craft shop. Since then I have become bored with simple stringing. I have ventured into kumihimo, viking knit, and the newest, wire working. I enjoy the wide range of possibilities before me with wire working. I find myself trying a new technique almost every day. I would thoroughly enjoy having a copy of this book…especially a signed copy!

    This would be an awesome addition to my beginner beading group that meets a couple of times a week. We would have a great opportunity to learn and use our bead finds in a supportive environment. We love beading!!!!

    Bridgette R. says:

    I would love to learn more techniques, especially with wire!!  I have the basics down when it comes to wire wrapping, but this would be a great book to teach me more!!

    TheBabe Shop says:

    I am just learning to use wire to make beautiful jewelry. I would love this book!

    i loved a signed copy please   

    Mchandler63 says:

    I love bending wire into pieces of jewelry in such a way that it doesn’t look hand bent.

    Marlene says:

    I am a complete novice who could use some instruction – would be thrilled to win a copy!!

    I myself have never tried jewelry making but always have wanted to. I believe if I win this book, it will give me a stepping stone into doing just that. I have tons of handmade beaded wire jewelry made by true artists and am in awe every time I find a piece I like. I can only hope to be as good as them. 

    Holly says:

    I’m a relative newbie to wirework & am always looking for new techniques & inspiration as I dive into this medium. This book would surely help!

    Ac Martin18 says:

    Wow, this book sounds great & I love the designs on the cover. I attend a jewellery making class every Thursday. Ive only been making jewellery since sept ’11, so Im pretty new to it. Ive done some wirework and love working wire wire. This book would give me lots of new projects, inspiration & ideas.

    I love making bead jewelry.  I like making wire jewelry but I am still a beginner at the wire aspect.  I would love this book and to learn all the techniques it has to offer!  Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway!  

    Janeth363 says:

    This book is just what I need! 
    Working with wire is a weak area of my jewelry-making, and I’d love to get better.
    I know this would be a big help.

    Jenny says:

    I love to make jewelry in the summer.  During the winter, I typically wear traditional pieces with sweaters and blazers. The summertime is when we go out to our favorite bistros and beaches. Clothing is casual and I enjoy making beaded jewelry to match each colorful outfit.

    I started making jewellery out of anything i could find when i was 3 and went on to study gold and silver smithing after school yet wire wrapping and me have always found problems. the reviews i have read online of this book make me think it may be the one to finally help me start doing wire wrapped jewellery when i am finally up and running a a self employed jeweller later this year!!

    Carla G says:

    I have done a little bit of wire bending and love it!  This looks like it would inspire me to do more!  Thanks for a chance to win!  :)

    Chris G says:

    I have been wanting to learn more about wire work but have not had the nerve to try it yet. This book could be just what I need to get me started. Thank you so much for the chance to enter for this great giveaway.

    swakins says:

    Tried lots of beading, but love playing with wire.

    Charlotte Nickerson says:

    I don’t know why, but I prefer wire-wrapping to stringing; if I never have to use another crimp bead in my life, I’ll be happy. :).

    That said, I’m always on the lookout for new techniques and interesting twists on old ones.

    Anonymous says:

    I love to see the wire form a shape! And I just love the look of it. It can be so rustic. Its a great way to hold a stone without messing with a setting and soldering. I enjoy it, but do need more practice. Would love to have this book for inspiration!

    I have been collecting beads of all kinds with the idea I’d begin beading some day. Maybe it’s time…?

    I have been making my own jewelry on and off for about 5 years now, and would love to learn some more advanced techniques, and new ideas. I would love to win your book!

    Sharlyn says:

    I’m a lampworker and using wire with my beads is a given.  However, I’ve never really had the same “vision” for wire that I do for beads.  I’ve been eyeing this at stores and online.  I’d love to win this!

    Bonnie Meyer says:

    BEAUTIFUL designs.  Peeking into the book, the instructions and photos look like they are easy to follow and the kick-start I need to get back into making jewelry!

    I would love a copy !   I make lamp work beads and am always looking for ways to enhance the beads.

    What’s not to love about bending metal?!?  It gives me a sense of power and control, and there’s an escape to an adventure around every “bend”!  

     Love the work you all do. I love working with wire, am just getting started, trying to wrap pieces that different than others I see. Its been difficult but I’ll catch on. To win this book would be great, I follow on facebook,twitter and pininterest, have also liked and added to wish list on Amazon.com.
