It's time for another Beadaholique giveaway!
The good folks over at Lark Crafts have been kind enough to supply us with the fantastic book Chains, Chains, Chains by Joanna Gollberg and Nathalie Mornu. We are giving this inspiring book to one lucky person who leaves a comment to this blog post telling us why they love chain. On Monday July 9th at 4pm PDT we will choose a winner at random from those who commented.
Featuring 25 necklace, earring, and bracelet design projects, this book "celebrates the chain as an eye-catching piece of jewelry in and of itself that takes the spotlight without any pendants, dangles, or charms." Most of the projects are for those comfortable with metalworking, but even if you are a novice in this arena, the ideas presented in the book will surely spark your creativity and have you itching to try something new.
Besides the projects and instructions presented in the book, there is a wonderful and large section devoted to the basics of getting started working with metal and creating metal chains. This section covers an overview of metal types, tools, equipment, skills, soldering, and finishing techniques. Lots of great photographs accompany the text for better understanding. Then in the back of the book there is a beautiful gallery of work by various artists, which is oh-so-inspiring!
If you would like to win this book, make sure to leave a comment and please do not comment anonymously and do not use your Yahoo Pulse Profile (we will not be able to reach you). Please adhere to all Beadaholique rules and conditions for this giveaway.
