Book review and giveaway: Beadmaille


You know how every once in awhile an idea comes along where you say, "Why didn't someone think of that sooner?"  Well, here's one!


Cindy Thomas Panokpf has written a delightful book showing us how to combine basic chainmaille with bead weaving.  Why didn't I think of that?  :-)   Beadmaille contains 25 fun and contemporary projects that will start you drooling.  If you've never done chainmaille...not to worry!  Cindy takes you through the basics that you'll need for her projects.  If you're not terrific at bead weaving...not to worry either!  There are projects for all skill levels, and wonderful illustrations to show you exactly what you should be doing.   


***FREE STUFF ALERT!!!***

Would you like to win a free copy of Cindy's new book?  Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!  In a week, on May 17, I'll randomly pick a winner.

Of course I'd like a copy of this book, silly! Count me in please. I saw a necklace she did and thought the same thing, why didn't I think of it, and why hasn't it been done a long time ago. I'm not too crazy for chainmaille but I think CM with Beads is SUPER!!

I wanted to thank you for the e-book chapter. Also I would love a copy of the book "Beadmaille" if I should be so lucky--I've been doing chain maille and variations for the past several years.
