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.
