Book review and giveaway: Multistrand Jewelry

This fine volume has been put together by Bead Style Magazine, part of the Kalmbach Press family, and I think that you are really going to like it, especially if you are a beginner.  In Multistrand Jewelry, most of the projects are simple, but very nicely done, and I would recommend it most strongly for someone who has fallen in love with stringing and who wants to move to the next level with some great looking multistrand pieces.

There are 31 projects - even more when you take into account all the suggested variations - by quite a number of very fine designers.  There are the wonderfully clear directions that Kalmbach is famous for, and great tips for success from the designers.  Beginners, you will love it!


Would you like to win a free copy of Multistrand Jewelry?  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: April 17, 2013

Thank you for offering a chance to win "Multistrand Jewelry" Multistrand opens the door wider for us as crafters/designers. I honestly have not yet tried one, fear of frustration with 'balancing the tiers is the main part that holds me back-
I would also like to say good luck to all of us, happy Jewel Crafting!

I'm in love with the necklace on the cover!!! I make mostly OOAK jewelry and no matter how hard I try, it usually ends up symmetrical or mostly so. I hope there are more asymmetrical inspiration pieces in this book and would love the chance to win it. Thanks for this generous offer.
