Book review and giveaway: Necklaceology


What to try first?

Candie Cooper has written one of the most fun books I've ever seen, just full of projects that you won't be able to wait to try.  The title?  Necklaceology

Candie has arranged her book according to the length of the necklace project, so you'll find sections on collars and chokers, princess-length, matinees, operas, and ropes.  Certainly many of the projects could be re-worked to end up being your favorite length, and in fact, Candie does show several tips along the way for how to accomplish that with style.

There is a very good beginner technique section too.  This book is not for those who are looking for earth-shattering new techniques, though.  Instead, it's really been written for those who would like to stretch their own design aesthetic and gather up some new ideas for how to combine mixed media materials with flair.  Candie-style flair!

And here's a bonus: if you're not sure, check out the free downloads that the publisher, Lark Publishing, has made available!  I am particularly fond of the Safe Keeping necklace that she shares here, and I will probably be making one soon!

But wait, it gets even better!  Now you have a chance to win a copy of Necklaceology right here!

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

Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered to win.  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 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: October 10, 2012
