Book review and giveaway: Aimee Ray's Sweet & Simple Jewelry



I'm not very much of a cuteness person.  Occasionally, but definitely not a steady diet of it.  However, I know from perusing many pinterest boards, that many many people are.  That's why I want to offer you the chance to win a free copy of Aimee Ray's Sweet & Simple Jewelry.  Aimee and 16 other popular Etsy and indie designers have come up with 32 simple jewelry projects for you to try.

The commonality is the cuteness.  You probably already know Aimee's style from Doodle Stitching.  Aimee writes:
Each project tells you everything you need in terms of tools and materials (feel free to sublstitute to suit your own style), and has step-by-step instructions.  If templates, patterns, or graphics are needed, you'll find them at the back of the book.    
See?  Simple!  No prior experience needed.  Some of the techniques covered are embroidery essentials, knot tying, making cabochons, needle felting, working with shrink plastic, and basic wirework.  My favorite piece in the book is Jennifer M Burgess's wrapped bead bracelet, which is shown on the cover in the bottom right corner.

GIVEAWAY ALERT!!!

Would you like to win a free copy of this book?  Here's what you need to do...please read this carefully.  Leave me a comment here and include your email address.  If I don't see your email address, I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  You are welcome to spell it out if you'd prefer, for example, cyndi at mazeltovjewelry dot com.  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: August 6, 2013.

This looks like a cute book. I'd like a chance to win it. I have a friend just learning to bead with her daughter and this would make a great gift or something for the 3 of us to share together.
