Book review and giveaway: Metalworking 101 for Beaders


Would you like to have a book that tells you how to do more metalwork than simply making your own jump rings and ear wires?  Would you like to learn how to make those correctly, but not stop there?


Have I got a treat for you!


Candie Cooper has written a terrific book, Metalworking 101 for Beaders, and I've got a copy here to give away!  Maybe you'd like to make your own bails with gorgeous pierced designs that complement the rest of your necklace (check out "bamboo bail").  Perhaps you've been wanting to learn to make your own ring bands ("profusion ring").  Or maybe soldered rings ("tassel necklace").


Candie starts out with all the technical know-how necessary to make the terrific projects she's included...and there are lots of them, ranging in skill levels so that everyone will find projects to love.  


***Free Stuff Alert!!!***


Would you like to win a free copy of Candie Cooper's 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!  Deadline: June 30, 2010.

I haven't seen this book yet, but it looks like it might be a good one if you are at least a step past a beginner.

You are so generous!!

What a brilliant looking book. Just the section on soldering jump rings would be worth the price of the book. I spend so much money on pre-soldered rings.

I would love to win this book as metal work is my next project I want to learn more of. I am interested i being able to make my own findings and get into stamping and forming and riveting.

flyingbeader said...

I've seen this book highlighted before & it looks wonderful. I think I'll need it sometime soon as I'm taking some metal class at PSBF

Carole said...

I'm a book-lover as well as a bead-lover, so this would be great!

I've just gotten into wire and metal working after taking a fabulous workshop with Mary Hettmansperger. This looks like a great book. Thanks for your generosity and I love your blog!

This would be a terrific gift for me. I'm just starting wire-working, and my library doesn't have this.

Edie said...

I think it would be lovely to add metal skills to my polymer clay beads - I really want to learn to make bead caps!

thanks for your generosity!

Cyndi I want to tell you that I have been following your blog and find it very helpful, fun and inspirational.

As for Metalworking 101, after 30 some odd years of saying I want to work with metal, I am finally starting to. As I am selftaught in a lot of techniques this book would be a godsend for me. There aren't a lot of classes here that I can travel to or afford.

Keep up the good work!

Hey!
I've allways wanted to learn how to make my own metal findings (besides earwires, jumprins and some easy clasps :D)!

You have a great blog and I've learn a lot of things here! Thank you!
