Book review and giveaway: 30-Minute Necklaces

30-Minute Necklaces: 60 Quick & Creative Projects for Jewelers 

I have a SIGNED COPY of Marthe Le Van's wonderful 30-Minute Necklaces!!  And I'm going to give it away to a lucky reader.  But first, I want to tell you about it...

This is not a beginner's book.  Despite the fact that the designs are fast to make, it is assumed that you know how to do basic stitches, drilling, soldering, and other metal work.  Even if you are a beginner, you will certainly find designs here that will thrill you and that you can easily make.  I just want you to be warned that even though this is a how-to book, it is far from comprehensive.  But if you are looking for designs to jump start your own creative juices, you've definitely come to the right place!!

30-Minute Necklaces contains 60 projects by 47 designers.  Very very cool!

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

Would you like to win a free copy of 30-Minute Necklaces?  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!  Please please please make sure that your link will lead me to an email address, or else I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  Deadline: November 10, 2010.

Oh, a new book! And signed by the author! I'm always a sucker for autographed books.
And I could use a some new ideas - I'm kind of in a 'burn out' phase at the moment.
