    I am not a big fan of FB, but I use it to track my calligraphy friends postings on their art!

    Lreign says:

    Art can and does change the world, how we see each other, what we are feeling and 2011′s digital world makes it just so much richer, easier and faster to feel motivated and be inspired. It’s great to feel connected to other artists. To feel challenged and stretch. To read feedback from peers. And to get to know our buyers, collectors, customers, clients in such a positive way that they just keep coming back for more and I don’t have to look for “a real job!”

    Sharlyngp says:

    On my gosh! I would so love to win these books! I’m actually kind of new at using social media. I’ve found it helps me when my creativity gets stuck. I can look for new ideas, contact a friend for some inspiration, or just surf and see what I might find. It gives you another point of view, other input, another source. Thanks so much for letting me hope I might win your wonderful book titles. They are indeed a source of creative inspiration and a source for new ideas!

    K H says:

    What a wonderful give away, I would be thrilled to win, I have some beading books, but you can never have too many sources for inspiration and learning. the 50 silver jewelry designs book looks especially interesting, I just got started with silver smith work a while back. I will be sure and share this on FB

    The Master series are the best beading books on the market! The leading beadwork designers share their great designs, beadwork knowledge and best of all tricks of the trade!

I would love to have this 14 book collection! Any I have that are duplicated would be gifted to other beading friends!

    J Lovell says:

    I pre-ordered Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery and received it a couple of weeks ago. My sister-in-law was in a bead store in Palm Beach and bought me one as a surprise. I gave back to my sister-in-law Sherry’s book she bought for me and now I think we just might have a new bead artist. Nice how things work out, thanks Lark for publishing the books you do.

    WOW what a generous givaway, Will definatly follow you on Face book!!

    Carina says:

    Wow! I could use some more books about beading. This would be the perfect librabry! :-)

    Oh I would love me some more books for my Lark collection. In my household we have a glass fuser, and I am a metalsmith/potter. Love, love, love your books. I think the FB page is pretty good, but it would be fun to be able to see some pages from books that might not be in our local bookstore. I find I buy books much more readily if I can see a preview of them :)

    Hello Lark Books, you create the most wonderful jewellery books! I have many in my collection. A suggestion I have for your facebook page would be to feature artists that are published in your books. A little bio and images of their work. That would promote the artists and the books.

    I like Lark books very much

    I use social media to stay in touch with friends and acquaintances, to keep up with what other people are doing with jewelry for inspiration (though never copying), and to share my own works and thoughts.

    Lark Books are always a great inspiration. I always want to make something beautiful when I look at them.

I have been enjoying the interviews and blog features that Lark has been putting on their page – dig through, you’ll find something you like! Funny this will post from home with no problem. Good luck to everyone!

    Whata great selection of books! Anybody would be lucky to own such a great collection! Facebook, I use it to post pictures of all my creations so I can get input from family and friends instead of e-mailing them and then waiting for answers.Instant answers sometimes. Sometimes I’ll post directly to a friend’s wall wih something I made for them, that way if they want me to change something I can before I send it off.

    Great way to keep up with friend that live far away.

    Jodyfink2000 says:

    Lark Books are not only books, they are tickets to a dreamland of colourful beads and sparkly crystals, amazing handmade jewels that you can actually make yours.
    I love the facebook page because of the free projects and all the news in it, would love some basics “how to”s for beginners and some tips on how to find inspiration, as well as some guides to create your own tutorials.

    amy says:

    great – I am a fan of the facebook page but for some reason I rarely see updates – which is more in part due tot eh way facebook is set up I guess? But I would love to see more calls for submission (perhaps I just miss them since you do not show in my facebook feed….boohoo)

    Dana Hickey says:

    How fun! A revamp, a giveaway and a FB fanpage woohoo!

    Mags Bonham says:

    I love the 500 series books in all media. They are great inspiration when the creativity muses are hiding out. I use fb to keep up with what other artists are up to. I use it as my home page and start each day looking through to see what folks are thinking about – whether it’s art, politics, news, or personal issues.

    Your books are so beautiful, and inspire me. Of course! I’d love a chance to win!

    DLGray says:

    Such an awesome collection! =)

    ByCher says:

    What a wonderful give-away! Lark books are the best, I’m never disappointed when I get one!

    Oh, how I would love to win these books!

    Cat M. says:

    Just found your site through the interview w/Brenda Schweder, which was fantastic! Definitely an artist I am glad to learn about. I don’t like using Facebook for much, so I’m afraid I have nothing useful to suggest.

    Judith Bertoglio-Giffin says:

    I’ve always liked what Lark does with books and subjects. Keep up the good work.

    Lois says:

    i just took a course from Brenda Schweder which was fantastic and was planning on buying her new book. i think i’ll wait and see if i win your great prize first. i love the lark books i already have and can always count on them being a terrific source of information and ideas which i’m using to help me start my own business to become a jewelry designer.

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G books . Lark books provide an fanastic opportunity for artists and craftspeople to show their work to the world. I love looking at them :)

    Yvonne Ireland says:

    I suggest a pay rise to who-ever thought up this giveaway – look at the interest it has generated for you. If I am lucky enough to be the chosen one (I would even pay the postage to get those books to me on the other side of the world eg I’m an Aussie)

    Wow, this is a great opportunity. I’m glad to be part of it. I also hope some day to be part of one of this wonderful books myself.

    Martin_virginie says:

    That is a GREAT giveaway. I like the idea of Holly Westfall about adding an artisan feature once in a while.
    Thank you!

    Lori says:

    I’m very happy to “Like” you on FB and add my comment re the content on Facebook: I live in semi-rural Canada, and although I fortunately have a good bead store about 25 miles away, not that many stores carry a range of beading books anymore, nor does the bookstore here seem to understand what a “good” beading book is (I am not interested in beginner books or rehashes of last year’s magazines). That forces me to take my business elsewhere, so I purchase online and it’s difficult to get a good source of the newest and greatest. If you intend to list the newest books, I’m so in! I’d also love some designer input including new techniques, designs and tips. A free design every now and again would certainly not go amiss either! ;-)
    I would LOVE to win the books you’ve listed! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Lori says:

    PS Marcia deCoster sent me. :-)

    What an Awesome GiveAway! Such Beautiful Books and Great Authors. Would LOVE a Chance to Win. =) Thank you for Playing! =D) Warm greetz from the Netherlands! =) Mx

    What an Awesome GiveAway! Such Beautiful Books and Great Authors. Would LOVE a Chance to Win. =) Thank you for Playing! =D) Warm greetz from the Netherlands! =) Mx

    There is nothing I love more than books and Lark books are at the top of the list. I use FB to keep track of my friends and activities I am interested in.

    Thanks so much for the AWESOME give away! A professor I had posted a link to it in our jewelry/metals mithing group on Facebook. The group itself just allows us to stay connected with one another and exchange tips, artists, (for those still in school) gain help with assignments, exhibitions and other opportunities such as this! As for what would be nice to see, a featured artist with their website, artist statement, and some examples of their work would be nice!
    Thanks again!

    Hello Lark Books, This is pretty amazing what your doing here. I’m a student at Columbus College Of Art and Design studying metal smithing. My instructor allows me to borrow some of these books from her and I have to say that I have been definitely inspiring. Countless hours I have spent looking at these trying to understand the techniques. When I leave CCAD I would love to have a set of my own and this is a great chance to try and ask for a set. I hope you consider me. Thank you Lark

    Lauraneidich says:

    threefatesdesign says:

    Wow, what a fantastic collection of books. I’m always blown away by your books, and these 14 are no different. I’m also loving the facebook page, very informative.

    Mary Govaars says:

    You are so very generous to share all of these wonderful books!! What a great collection to get re-inspired in my jewelry design. I of course love your facebook page. I think it would be great to have some short video demos, that would get people to explore your entire facebook page. Also some photos of some of the examples that are in your books would be another bonus.

    Sue says:

    Lark books has a better selection of types of unique arts and crafts than anyone other book publisher I’ve found. Loved it for years!

    Kendratbruno says:

    An amazing collection, a fantastic idea!

    Natalie Jean says:

    What a great marketing tool! And so generous, too. :) I would love to have any one of these books… but all of them would be even nicer. :)

    Wow – I so want this – I think I would really love to see works from different artists and and interview with that person discussing their work and giving tips for beginners like myself.

    LynS says:

    Can’t wait to see 500 Silver Jewelry Designs! A fabulous idea to have a giveaway! I have a few of your books and they are wonderful!

    Introducing projects in a variety of media is a great way to advertise and gain readers/artists.

    My newest Lark acquisition is Sherry Serafini’s “Sensational Bead Embroidery”. LOVE IT!!! What’s next?

    Holy Wow! What a fantastically generous giveaway. I have a few of these titles already which just means they’d make great Pay It Forward gifts. Thanks for the sweet opportunity.

    Keep publishing, and we’ll keep buying!

    Lilush says:

    I would LOVE to receive the books!!!!!!

    M-manola says:

    The truth is, I have never visited your site before. I just recently decided to start making jewelry and I can tell you, I have never studied so much for anything else in my life. Until now I have been searching through the internet for techniques and I was amazed by the variety. I had no idea!!! It would be great to start a “jewelry making library” with one of these books. Thank you.

    Chris Overberg says:

    First time I have discovered you What Fun!!!

    Andrew Thornton says:

    I use social media to keep in contact with people. The social media outlets that I am drawn to are the ones that provide a personal feel and allow me to get to know the people and ideas behind a company. Having that interface is invaluable! At the same time, I’m always interested in the latest news, information, giveaways, and interviews. I think you guys already do a great job at it and I can’t wait to see where things will go!

    Heather371 says:

    I love beading, it’s so relaxing. Love to be able to make handmade gift and give to friends and family, just because. A suggestion I would have for your beading facebook page is why not create a link of “free” tutorials so beginners like me can learn more and be inspired to purchase books.


    Ohh! Absolutely drooling. :)

    Csexton3031 says:

    I love all these books – thank you Interweave!

    Arlinebeadlady says:

    Janice says:

    I have truly enjoyed the bead weaving books you have published! I look forward to a copy of Sherry Serafini’s book in the near future. Hearing that Jill Wiseman, Maggie Meister, and Marcia DeCoster will have upcoming books published by you is a joy! Thanks for the good work.

    I own a lot of beading books, and I think out of all of them I love the books published by Lark books, they are my go to books for ideas and inspiration!

    Melissa says:

    Some examples from the books would be sweet. Usually helps me decide. :)

    Wonderful giveaway!!

    A most splendid giveaway…books to love…be inspired by…and share!!
    On Facebook you could do a weekly post with a collage of photos from your different books…by clicking on the photo the person would be taken to a particular Artist, etc.

    Krys Mann says:

    I would love these for my collection. I would love to see authors and mini projects that are highlighted in their books to give people a taste of what the book contains.

    Susan Kennedy says:

    I agree an artist feature would be great, or an inside look into projects, or a free project download would be great!

    Shannon C says:

    What a wonderful giveaway. I like your fb page because it connects me to prizes like this and to calls for submission and to when books are coming out.
    I agree that artist features would be awesome and maybe a day for your “likers” to post their links.

    Cstonefield6 says:

    Fantastic giveaway!! Love the chance to drool over some of your books – you always have fabulous pictures!

    Christine says:

    I think what would be great is to have artists take a design from their book, and then show how to make variations using the basic technique.

    Erin Strother says:

    wow–great giveaway! I’d love to own these books.

    Cemetz09 says:

    This is such a great giveaway. I checked out your facebook page, it’s great!

    Sandi says:

    Although I am a librarian I don’t actually own many books – except my art books, many of them published by Lark. Thanks for the opportunity. Sandi

    I can’t really think of anything you could do better with your posts. Maybe a little about each book your publish to whet our appetites. Plus like someone else said, a short Bio about the people in the books, the authors, etc.
    I try to use my Social Media to promote my small online Glass Kreationz shop and about other great artists, shops, giveaways I find.

    Pat Haight says:

    What an awesome giveaway! I love your books!

    Kym Hunter says:

    Leigh says:

    I would love a chance to win all these awesome books! Like others have said, maybe some more details about author bios would be good.

    Carolina_inmymind says:

    Janet says:

    Meghan says:

    what a fantastic & inspiring collection of books!

    Thfox says:

    What a giveaway! This is so huge. I’ve been a fan of your FB page for a while.

    Kaitlin Y. says:

    I have never heard about you guys, but it looks like your books have some very yummy projects!

    What a spectacular giveaway!
    I am not so keen on Facebook, although I hear it is the place to be. I suppose I should bring it back into my life again. But really I am a blogger. I am a wordsmith who loves writing and the short posts on FB and the limited amount of words on Twitter don’t intrigue me at all. I also write as a contributing editor on the Art Bead Scene and love to connect poeple with art and sharing creativity. So I love to see things like that. Tutorials, interviews, reviews… those are all things that bring me to a blog. And connecting with the people who write them is what makes it an amazing community to be a part of!
    Enjoy the day!

    LeslieN says:

    I love to see what readers have done with projects from the books. It’s inspiring… and a real life version of the projects as well, rather than a buffed and fluffed and well-lit display. Such pictures give me courage to try!

    Cynthia Eid says:

    You go, Lark! great stuff, really adding to the vitality of contemporary crafts!

    Camille Knutson says:

    Hurray! I love a great giveaway! Lark has the most beautiful books around…thanks for the gorgeous photography and all the inspirations! I’d really like to see a book on cloisonne and enamel artists in the future…there are a lot of us that would LOVE the opportunity to be in one of your beautiful books…thanks again!!

    Grmom68 says:

    Thank you for the opportunity, I enjoy seeing an artist’s workspace as they are hard at work.
    Thank you

    Lucidmoonstudio says:

    I love the jewelry design books, especially the metalsmithing ones. Steel Wire Jewelry looks awesome!! I agree with previous comments that interviews with the authors would be a cool feature on your Facebook page. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    Calico Callie says:

    I love reading interviews with jewelry artists about what inspires them. LOTS of photos too!

    Helena says:

    The best books are from Lark! Thanks for a chance at the giveaway!

    Rochen says:

    Bravo Lark! I love your books and have a large library in all kinds of Lark titles!

    sandi m says:

    I love Lark Books. They are always beautiful and you select the most talented artisan authors. Would love to add these to my collection.
    Regarding Facebook, I echo other comments – feature more of the authors and their work.

    LaLa says:

    Lark Books, I LOVE your juicy, sweet photography! The gems and jewels are all so alive I could just devour them all in one bite! Thank you for the inspiration and awesome, high quality offerings. I’d love it if you’d consider creating just a limited few of your gorgeous books hardbound as in coffee table editions. The soft covers just don’t take the abuse of the hardbound ones. Just a thought; limited edition, collectors’ volumes…

    Wow, what an amazing giveaway! I’d love to see little excerpts from your books on the Facebook page. Seeing a sneak peek at something always gets me more excited to dive into the rest of the title!

    Trudi says:

    I love craft books! What a fabulous offer. It is very generous of you! I look forward to exploring your redesigned site. Right now I am going to check out the patterns you are making available via KnitPicks!

    Shirley Moore says:

    Love the FB page. I mainly use FB for information updates. To lead me somewhere else. I have several Lark books, but not the ones in the giveaway, especially the signed copies. I have been a long time admirer of Diane Fitzgerald’s work, and Sherry Serafini. I have to say I have also been a long time admirer of Lark books as well. The clear, concise instructions and photos are invaluable to beginners and more experienced artists. Thank you so much for this wonderful giveaway. Blessings, Shirley

    Suetarhill says:


    susanjonesjewelry.com says:

    Thank you so much for giving everyone a chance to win a book. I did share the post on FB. Any great tips that can be shared on FB would always be wonderful. Also, it is always fun to read about other artist! :) Since I’ve begun to teach silversmith, what about sharing tips for teachers and maybe even highlighting courses offered in various places? That is just an idea. Thank you again for offering the giveaway!
    Kindest regards,
    Susan K. Jones

    Jannav says:

    Amazing books! Whooopee!

    I enjoy getting the email updates from the blog. With over 700 “friends” on my Facebook account, I’m really not looking to get more tidbits over Facebook. Hope you keep the blog updates coming. Thanks.

    velmag says:

    Great books to have for my inspiration library.

    Mthompson says:

    Teo says:

    I don’t use social media. Why play with a computer when you could be making something.

    Dr Agon_lady says:

    I love to create jewelry for my family and friends and am considering going to the next level…craft fairs and local music fairs…these books would be a godsend….

    Abarrett says:

    I like the new look. The giveaway is awesome. I would like to see free projects on the FB page.

    Yvonne says:


    I love Lark Books. My friends and I are always saying they are the better written books with great images and instructions. To 14 of them would be the frosting on a cake for me! Too cool.

    I just checked out your FB page. I like it a lot. I endded up getting distracted and reading a few articles.

    Melississippii says:

    I still find Facebook difficult to navigate… after years of using it! Your website is fantastic though and I like the new look!

    Marsha Neal Studio says:

    I mostly use FB to give updates on my Etsy shop and things going on in my studio. Often I will publish things through Twitter to post on my personal FB page which helps with keeping up with things. Have not explored too much else yet. There seems to be a lot of options popping up with Social Media Networking in the last few months…

    Blackwatersiren says:

    Lark books are so amazing and beautiful!

    Em Fouad says:

    I would love to be entered in the drawing. What a wonderful collecion of books to whoever gets them yea! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I would like to see jewlery made wit lampwork beads. It would be cool to see some innovative designs for inspiration. Awesome ideas here.
    Thanks Penny

    Deannartassoni says:

    I love it! I knit and crochet from books my Grandmother gave to me. I know she used to bead jewelry as well. I’d love to pick up a new craft :)

    MamaVix says:

    What an amazing package. I’d like that vintage jewellery book for the cover image alone. Keep it up, inspiring the world!!!

    KCbeader says:

    As a bead artist I own a number of beading books, but none of the ones in the giveaway. I’m always interested in new ways to further my knowledge of beading and incorporating other things with my beads. More resources mean more inspiration!

    Koudryj says:

    I like the new look. Would love to win one of these fabulous books. I don’t spend much time on facebook as I would prefer to spend my time making jewelry.

    Ryan Ricks says:

    It was an honor to be included in your 500 Silver Jewelry book. The other 13 would be a great addition to anyone’s collection!

    LizzieB says:

    I love your new redesign! Nice look. Nice colors. Easy to navigate!

    Mystica97 says:

    My fiance would laugh if he were to see me posting here in hopes of winning this particular series. I am one of those crafters/artists that can’t decide from day to day what media I am going to be interested in.. lol. I spend time doing everything from polymer clay, to glass work, to jewelry, and I love how eclectic this selection is!:)
    No matter what, I’ve found a few more books I want! :)
    Can’t wait to hear the results of this one!:)

    Reflibrarian says:

    I am new to beading, but I love it! I am also a reference librarian who orders craft books for the library where I work.

    Darcy Horn says:

    I, too, love your books. I’d like to see content from the books you are publishing. A few pages like the table of contents and projects featured.

    Cenya says:

    Fabulous Books. Although I own some of them already, I would love to win these so I can share duplicates with my local library. I always look for Lark books in my local bookstore. I know I’ll be getting exceptional pictures and information.

    Theresa Geary says:

    It is wonderful to see how bead art has expanded tremendously in the past 10 years!!! This type of promotion is sure to get attention for the authors and the publisher. The book selection in the bundle is nothing short of awesome!!!

    Tuscany Lampwork Art says:

    I just found out about this site from a fellow artist. Wonderful ideas. Thanks

    Anne Holman says:

    Your blog and books are such a great resource! I have a number of your books already that I am always bringing to school to show my jewelry students. It would be great to get a collection like this to share with the school. What a great promotion! Keep up the great work!

    Anne Ricketts says:

    Thanks for the oppertunity to win a copy!! Y’all rock!

    I’m just learning to make earring with wires. Been stuck with one design. THis would help me alot.

    Audrie says:

    What a great Giveaway! My Library (which already contains many Lark books) can always use more How-To books. These would be a great addition to it. Thanks for this opportunity.

    Mltsmith says:

    WOW….. cool Facebook page. I had no idea there was anything on there like this. And you having a terrific giveaway. That in itself is most awesome. The books you are giving away are superb. I am going to share your Facebook page for sure. Love it, love it, love it.

    Debbie says:

    This would be fun to win!

    Holly says:

    Oh wow, the giveaway is a great idea… I’d love to share the books as inspiration to my students during my Metal Clay jewelry classes. Inspiration is everywhere. I have a select number of lark 500 series books and a few how to, but would love to add as much inspiration as possible.
    For Facebook it would be nice for a short sweet tip of the day on all things technique, crafts and marketing.
    Holly Gage

    Mai says:

    anyjsmith says:

    Lark books have always been some of my favorite books.

    One thing about facebook – if an entity (other than a person) posts too often, then I find it irritating instead of interesting. Just a thought.

    I do look at this blog fairly often and love the links to other things that I might like.

    Zaller60 says:

    I just can’t believe how fortunate I am for having found your site! I just recieved Masters “Collage” today and was inspired to look at your site…I am so glad that I did!
    Great job guys,

    [...] giveaway will end Monday, May 2. Check out the newly redesigned Lark Jewelry & Beading site and find out how you can enter for your chance to win all these great books! You may also [...]

    Dollie says:

    This is totally awesome! How To’s on getting started with beading and jewelry would be nice.

    ginaboyce says:

    love these books!

    Roxan O'Brien says:

    These are all great books which I would like to own. Thanks for the give away.

    Jainnie Jenkins says:

    I LOVE social media for the fact that I am exposed to many different techniques and new ideas I otherwise might not know about!! Thanks for providing such great ideas and books, and of course, this cool giveaway! :)

    Dawn Peterson-Smith says:

    While I am not on Facebook much, I love beading and crochet – but I haven’t been able to marry the two successfully. I would LOVE to have these books (or any ONE of them!) but my budget doesn’t allow for that right now. Amazing books with amazing projects and information!

    Congratulations on the redesign!

    Lele712 says:

    I think this is an awsome giveaway. I use social media to learn new techniques and get inspiration.

    aj . says:

    I would love to see more tutorials. I am always on the search for great tutorials that will spark my creative interest when beading.

    I honestly tend to use Facebook for keeping in touch with my family and playing games, but I do like to search for new and interesting creative pursuits, too.

    Charity McAllister says:

    Wow! What a haul! I hope I win! :)

    Kelly says:

    What an amazing give away, I’d love to win :)

    Sandy says:

    I love books on wire jewelry – new and interesting techniques – you have some really great ones, keep finding more.

    social media is a great way to advertise & it’s such a new/unprecedented part of today’s business world that the sky truly is the limit. i’d love to see showcases of up & coming jewelry artists. also, tutorials & innovative new techniques in jewelry-making. basically use it as a jewelry “newspaper” or “newsletter” would be so fantastic. print media, specifically magazines, are being phased out by technology. so getting in on the ground floor of utilizing social media in this way will not only reaffirm the loyalty of current customers but also pave the way for you to gain new customers, enthusiasts, followers. & the best part is that because of this revolutionary addition to business it can be done without having to expend the usual amount of money, advertising research, & marketing that you’d need to before. i love that this company’s going in this direction & can’t wait to see how lark (a leader in innovative information for jewelry makers the world over) will turn social media to its advantage.
    a cool new company specifically for applications of social media in business:
    these are exciting time for the business community.

    ReleaseMeCreations says:

    WOW! This is an incredible giveaway!! I’m always trying to expand my knowledge :)
    I love to see FB posts on tutorials, and ideas for inspiration. I like to use Facebook to connect with everyone, and also to learn from them.

    What a wonderful collection of books!

    Tammy L says:

    This is a generous giveaway! I personally LOVE books! Thanks for the opportunity!
    I’ve Tweeted and posted to my FB about your giveaway. I hope it brings you lots of visitors.

    My oh my, would I love to win these great books!! I use social media (facebook and twitter) to promote the jewelry I make for people with sensitive skin. I mainly make earrings for sensitive ears using Surgical Steel and 100% hypoallergenic Niobium metals. I am working on branching into necklaces and rings now too. My facebook page is at http://www.facebook.com/PrettySensitiveEars. And twitter is http://www.twitter.com/prettysensitive

    Anonymous says:

    It would be great to have this wonderful collection of books on hand. I like to see ‘tricks of the trade’ to make jewelry making a bit easier for the beginner. I also like to find a free project. Thanks for this giveaway.

    Megan Harmon says:

    To win any of the books would be fabulous! Facebook is great for keeping people posted on your site’s current info. I prefer to brows the newsfeed on facebook, it is much easier that having to check email updates! And I just recently found your page through the “favorite pages” of another site I liked. And as for what I’d like to see more of? Pictures! I love to see pictures of the jewelry and the books!

    Bronswirlz13 says:

    As a bibliophile and a crafter this is an amazing giveaway!

    Mary Anne says:

    I like a good book review, short and to the point.

    Jen H says:

    What a generous giveaway :D I love Lark books. You always have such great titles. When I worked at the local bookstore, I would ask my supervisors how I could get more Lark titles in stock. :) I love hearing about upcoming titles & new tools. It would be great to read about new techniques & tutorials too. I don’t have any of these titles yet, so thank-you so much for the chance! :)

    Tina Wegner says:

    Love the giveaway! Facebook is a great way to learn new crafting ideas and find others with similar likes! I always like “beginner info” to bring me into a new craft. I love, love, love sparkly jewelry!

    I would love any and all of these books,, I have 2 already, but I know some ladies who would love a re-gift!

    Laura says:

    Wow, these books could really help me. I just started to get into jewelery making. As for social media I don’t care to much for Facebook to intimidating, so much information from to many places all the time, and for Twitter, I’m not the type to be constantly sending or receiving those little messages.

    I love the variety of books you publish…they serve as inspiration for new ways in which to use materials…would love to see a book on how to combine copper, brass, bronze and nickel or german silver in pieces of jewelry…cost of silver and gold has gone so high that we need a way to utilize our artistic visions in other metals but there are so many questions as to how to solder these materials which each has its own color…and to do so without obvious solder joins showing…thanks…also, would love to be a winner of this fantastic library…Pat Klein

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful giveaway! I love Lark books. I think you’re doing a great job. Can’t think of what else I would like to see in your books. :)

    Lynn Latta says:

    I am a big fan of these books and have 5 of them.
    Thank you,

    Julie says:

    This sounds fantastic. I enjoy looking for new ideas to create something beautiful. Would be a great addition to my collection of books. The girls in my family would definitely benefit from some new ideas. I would really love to win this collection of beautiful books.

    Ooh, lovely giveaway, thank you for the chance. As far as social networking goes, I’m not so excited by it– and to tell you the truth, I am an old-fashioned, dinosaur-type who sees a distinction between the social use of social networking sites and the commercial use of social tools, and I don’t really like seeing them blurred. As I am fighting an uphill battle, I am sure I will end up liking FB pages that act like blogs (in other words, offer tutorials and interviews and links, plus pools for people to post pictures of their projects).

    Cool did not know about this publisher

    Buttrflygirl420 says:

    i love how- to books! i have taught myself to knit, embroider, lampwork and make jewelry through books. i am a lefty so that is one of the reasons i use books to learn. it would be so exciting to win all these books!! i enter contests all the time but never much luck in winning them. i am a FB fan, and would love to see more left-handed tutorials!

    I personally use Facebook about once a year, but I’d like to see the same things that make up any site I like – great information, humour and eye-candy :)

    Ladybug45382 says:

    What a wonderful selection of books.! I would love to see a link to preview them.

    Dfriedle says:

    What a giveaway! I limit my Facebook activities to friends and family. There’s just too much out there to look at! I’d never get any of the projects I love done.

    Jnet00 says:

    What an incredible give-away! Thank you Lark Crafts for this wonderful opportunity!!

    Deborah S says:

    Oh, these are just wonderful. A couple of them I already own, but since I’m a librarian I’d love to share them with my library. I use FB for information. Like some of the other commenters, I would like to hear more about the authors and have them answer questions about the jewelry and techniques featured in their books. Thanks for the great opportunity!

    Jane1 says:

    What a fantastic giveaway!!!

    KathyK says:

    Looks like a great selection of books. I would love to win. I just checked out your Facebook page and joined. I like the fact that you post frequent instructions and will visit it frequently now that I know about it.

    I love to see what other people are making in craft books, and I’ve never done anything with polymer clay.

    Thank you for the giveaway. Someone is going to be very happy on Tuesday. :) I would also like to see links to different artists on Facebook. Also, I would love looking at a gallery of work from the different books.

    Beckycpearson says:

    Love your books. Thanks for inspiring the creativity in all of us.

    Wow. Great fun. I recently bought the Penland Book of Jewelry and am enjoying it very much. Thanks, Steven

    jamberrysong says:

    I use my blog and, to a lesser extent, Facebook and Twitter to connect and network with others. I love that the world is literally at my fingertips! I’ve found the forums at Beadingdaily.com and deviantart.com to also be great online venues for connecting with other jewelry artists. I would love to see more of these outlets featured here. :D Someone’s definitely going to be dancing on Tuesday!

    Patereeves says:

    Thanks so much for posting this giveaway. I have found some wonderful information and inspiration from your site!!

    StephanieK says:

    This would be so perfect for my husband! He just started making jewelry a couple years ago – and his birthday is very soon – this would be a great gift!

    Wow, I’m glad I saw this contest. I have so many Lark books. One of the last ones is Steel Wire Jewelry, and I cannot wait to try some of the projects. I’d love to have more books for my library.

    The most recent book that I have received is Steel Wire Jewelry. I can’t wait to try the projects.

    Penny says:

    What an awesome giveaway!!! I would be ecstatic if I won this beautiful collection of books!

    What a great idea for a giveaway. Any beader would be glad to receive this collection.

    Selma says:

    Love your selection of books. It is a wonderful chance to see and enjoy books about my favorite artists.

    Goldfish says:

    Wow! Wire jewelry, polymer clay, glass beads – all the things I love. If I can’t have a treasure chest full of these things, I’d sure love to have the books to dream over.

    this is a wonderful giveaway! i’d love to learn to make some polymer clay beads!

    Monique says:

    oooh, I’m so glad I found you! How wonderful, and thank you for the opportunity to enter the giveaway! I’ll be stopping by often :)!

    Nynajune says:

    I just recently found you on face-book through an artist friend of mine. I have a few Lark books in my studio, and a long wish list of others I would love to have. Crossing my fingers that Tues I might be a very lucky girl.

    dswanson00 says:

    Fabulous books – thanks SO much!

    I think a link to books’ authors is good, also!

    klhood says:

    On your facebook page, I’d love to see info about books and the artists in the books – lots of pictures!

    Ruth Hill says:

    I don’t know a lot about jewelry and the making of it, but this is a great giveaway! thanks!

    Lyn Foley says:

    Thank you for this giveaway. The books look terrific and I will be jumping and screaming around my studio if I win.

    Social Media: I am probably a minority, as I recently closed my facebook account. I prefer blogs and “regular” websites to connect.

    Jamie says:

    Wow! What an amazing giveaway!

    Debra Womack says:

    What a great giveaway! Lark’s books are the best!

    Wow! What a great giveaway! I love your books and always look for any thing new you put out!

    Ksukeena says:

    LARK quite rocks. All of these books look brilliant

    chris says:

    This is a most generous giveaway! It is a spectacular assortment that I would love to own. Your facebook page is most informative and always something of interest there. I have to admit I love a good blog because you can always learn something from discussions going on in the beading world. Sometimes it’s just fun, other times a real learning experience.
    What would I like to see on your facebook page? Hmmmmm, news of upcoming books with some reviews, and lots of pictures and articles of interest pertaining to the new book, maybe even some type of discount for early buyers.
    There are a million comments here, I hope to the be lucky one to win! =)

    Keith Lo Bue says:

    I’d like more tutorials on your FB site. You guys do a great job.

    Alison Antelman says:

    I’m sure we’d like additional series of Lark books for our own libraries and how about giving some to main libraries of many cities…for a little bit of posterity, inspiration, and legitimacy of our art form.

    Donna says:

    I’ve been ordring from Lark Books since paper days. Good books, good company.

    Fuzzishu says:

    Lauren says:

    I just discovered Lark Crafts and am thrilled that I finally found a “great” website devoted to sharing current jewelry and beading information and free projects that don’t suck!  I would love to see you continue to post as much as you can about beading.  There aren’t very many sites devoted to beading, and the ones that are could take some tips from you!  The free jewelry and beading projects(that don’t suck) are a wonderful bonus!! Thank you and keep up the great work! 

    Nynajune says:

    So the winners name is not posted yet for this book give-a-way. I received an e-mail from Ray (I hope it was true) that I was the randomly chosen winner. Please let this be true, I’m so looking forward to receive all these wonderful books. ~Nyna~

    My brother recommended I might like this website. He was entirely right. This post truly made my day. You can not imagine simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

    Keep functioning ,remarkable job!

    How exciting! As a librarian, I always enjoy adding Lark books to the Arts/Crafts collection; as a jewelry-maker, I enjoy looking through the books to see what others are doing and for inspiration
