Short and sweet: In honor of all the pop-up jewelry stores, well, popping up this spring, we’re doing a pop-up giveaway: 48-hours from now we’ll give away a set of 12 author-signed jewelry and beading books. Some of the books are brand new releases, some are older classics: all are wonderful.
They’re a mix of metalwork and beadweaving titles, because all the books hold ample inspiration and beauty for artists and jewelry designers of all types. If you already own some of them, of course the books make wonderful gifts for friends.
How can you enter for a chance to win the dozen books? Leave a comment on this blog post by 9 p.m. EST on Wednesday, April 4. The comment can be anything, but just to be different, why don’t you tell us what your favorite poem is? It’s a time to celebrate, after all: April is National Poetry Month and in spring, to paraphrase, the world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.
One winner will be selected at random and announced on Monday, April 9. Click here for the official rules. Thank you for being a part of the Lark Jewelry & Beading community, and please connect with Lark Jewelry & Beading on Facebook.
