Book Review and Giveaway: Bewitching Bead & Wire Jewelry

The lovely folks over at Lark Crafts were kind enough to send us a copy of their new book: Bewitching Bead & Wire Jewelry.  We love the variety of techniques used in the 40 projects in this book.  And the clear photographs and instruction make every one of them accessible to jewelry makers of any level.  The projects range from simple beaded drops up to more intermediate wire work, such as hand-linked chains and some very pretty wire-wrapping.

We thought we’d share, and give this book away to one lucky reader.  To enter, simply leave a comment on this post.  Giveaway ends next Monday, May 13th at 4pm PT.  At that time, we will choose one random winner from those who left comments on this blog post.  Please do not comment anonymously and do not use your Yahoo Pulse Profile or your Twitter account when commenting, we cannot contact you if you do.  If you comment using your Facebook account, please make sure that your privacy settings allow us to contact you – and check your “other” folder after the giveaway ends.  Please adhere to all Beadaholique rules and conditions for this giveaway.

Good Luck!
