If you love beading then you are sure to want a chance at this giveaway! I have three of Lark’s Beadweaving Master series to give away including Laura McCabe’s Embellished Beadweaving, Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery, and Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance!
Embellished Beadweaving is luscious! Lacy, fringed, and opulent interpretations from both nature and imagination, Laura’s work is anything but plain. Rich colors, abundant textures, and even an antique prosthetic eye or two become embellished works of art. Laura says the aim of this book is to, “provide knowledge and inspiration to take your beadwork to the next level by embellishing beads with yet more beads—to create a multidimensional realm of beauty and adornment, all made possible by starting with one single bead.” One gorgeous bead after another, Laura certainly creates beauty in every work. Take a few minutes to read an interview with Laura McCabe and get a free project from Lark Jewelry & Beading now! You can also see more of Laura’s work at Just Let Me Bead.
Sherry Sarafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery delivers what the name promises. With Sherry’s broad background in art, it is no wonder her beaded creations are wearable art. Sherry says bead embroidery drew her because of the freedom it allows for “the creative restless soul.” Sherry shares both step-by-step instructions in her book for 25 projects along with basic rules and stitches for you to explore and develop your own creative voice. Read the interview with Sherri at Lark Jewelry & Beading and see what a star she is! You can also make her gorgeous Arizona Sunset Earrings with the free project from Lark. Take a look at more of Sherry’s work at Sherry Sarafini Beaded Jewelry.
Inspired by her time in Naples, Maggie says, “I was surrounded by ancient history. The fragments of Roman columns, mosaics and frescoes are my inspiration and I am grateful for those ‘ancient voices.’ ” Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance is filled with sumptuous designs that are reminiscent of a museum collection of rare and exquisite jewelry. Read the interview with Maggie and learn more about how she works or make her lovely Artemisia Earrings with the free project from Lark Jewelry & Beading. You can learn more about Maggie at Amphora Designs or see more of her historically inspired work at MaggieMeister.com.
