3 Beadweaving Master Series books from LarkIf 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.

To enter the giveaway for these three fabulous books from Lark, leave a comment telling which book or artist is most interesting to you and why. The giveaway ends August 28. Sorry, this giveaway is open to US residents only.

    Embellished Beadweaving looks like a really interesting book. I want to expand my horizons with jewelry making and this book looks like something I might enjoy.

  2. MIssy on August 13, 2011 11:21 am

    I want the Embellished Beadweaving book! Love that piece on the cover!

  3. Jeanine McWhorter on August 13, 2011 11:26 am

    All three books look fabulous. Of course, Laura McCabe is awesome, but if I had to choose, I’m really interested in Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance because of the historical references and the way she has made beads look like metal and antiquities. I would dearly love to add this book to my library and learn from her.

  4. Char on August 13, 2011 11:30 am

    fabulous books!

  5. Lisaann on August 13, 2011 11:32 am

    I love the Embellished Beadweaving book! It is totally my style!

  6. angela on August 13, 2011 11:50 am

    Sherry Sarafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery would be my first choice as I have been playing with it and want to go deeper into more complex projects. Her work is fabulous and inspires me greatly. Thanks so much, Angela

  7. Regina on August 13, 2011 12:40 pm

    Laura’s work is just amazing! I’ve done some simpler pieces – this would give an inspiration kick to the next level.

  8. Nancy on August 13, 2011 12:43 pm

    Sensational Bead Embroidery looks like so much fun. I just love the Arizona sunset earrings. I’ve done a little bit of bead embroidery and would like to do more.

  9. Fernanda on August 13, 2011 1:34 pm

    I like Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance because I love the idea of making and wearing elegant/classic jewelry.

  10. Jenn Guymon on August 13, 2011 2:52 pm

    I am most intrigued by Maggie Meister’s book, because the designs to be the most unusual and innovative.

  13. Sigrid on August 13, 2011 5:24 pm

    Classical Elegance strikes a real chord. I’ve been in love with nearly everything ancient Roman and Greek since I was young, and even managed to convince my husband to go to Greece for our honeymoon, lol.

  14. Andrea on August 13, 2011 8:42 pm

    All three books and designers sound fabulous! If I have to pick one than it would be Sensational Bead Embroidery. I love beading and I love embroidery so the book has to be great! Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Renee G on August 13, 2011 9:58 pm

    I am most interested in Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery. ALthough I have done some work with beads, I haven’t combined it with embroidery before. This sounds fantastic.

  25. Frances Thompson on August 14, 2011 9:14 am

    Laura McCabe is just my FAVORITE! I absolutely love all her work. Not living close enough to take her classes, I drool over her books! (Well, not really, it would be messy,)

  26. nangy on August 14, 2011 9:19 am

    I would love to have Embellished Bead Reading. I think Laura McCabe is a fantastic artist. I love her work, and would love to work some of her patterns.

  32. Julie Witt on August 14, 2011 11:30 am

    My favorite is the Classic Elegance book because I can’t really afford elegant jewelry, so it would be really cool if I could make it instead of buying it!!! Thanks for an awesome giveaway:)

  33. mary fanara coleman on August 14, 2011 11:43 am

    Love the book Sensational Bead Embroidery and there is the instructions for making earrings designed by Sherry Serafini. Would love to make these.

  34. Christina Graham on August 14, 2011 1:10 pm

    Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery would be the one I would choose because my mom just started doing this type of beading and I know she would love this!

  35. patty on August 14, 2011 4:56 pm

    i started doing beading all the books would be grat to have it would be hard to choose so iam not going to i pick all because every book that is out there is great thanks

  36. Melissa Entzminger on August 14, 2011 5:00 pm

    All of these books sound amazing but if I had to pick just 1 I would say Embellished Beadweaving, more my style!!

  37. Cecilia Helena on August 14, 2011 5:10 pm

    Com certeza são livros maravilhosos, gostaria de ganha-los para aprender mais sobre bijuterias finas.

  38. Lynda Padgett on August 14, 2011 5:22 pm

    Sensational Beading is my choice I love the dramatic look that beading can make on different things

  39. Johanna Crellin on August 14, 2011 5:56 pm

    Laura McCabe’s Embellished Beadweaving…..i am a Avid Scrapbooker and anything withe word EMBELLISHMENT is like blue to a bower bird with me LOL ^_^

  40. Fran DeWitte on August 14, 2011 6:25 pm

    Sheri Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery, of course!!! Her work is the best.

  41. Dennis on August 14, 2011 7:13 pm

    I would really love to get Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery because I have been trying to do it for a long time off and on. I just get upset and put it away because it never looks like the picture in the tut I am looking at. Her book is well written I looked at it in a display at a book store but I can’t afford to buy it. I hope3 I win and thank you for this giveaway and have a great week.

  42. adrienne zedella on August 14, 2011 8:40 pm

    chichijunk at cs dot com

  43. Lise M Pitre on August 15, 2011 4:39 am

    I would love to see all the books but to be honest this book Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance caught my attention the most…it seems like something that would be extremely interesting. I really think that if I won this I would give the giveaway to my friend who is into this so much more than me. Hoping to win…Wooh ooh.

  44. lee on August 15, 2011 5:07 am

    i love to embroider so the bead embroidery would be a great fit for me! thanks for the book giveaway

  45. Lynn on August 15, 2011 5:57 am

    I am most interested in Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance. Her earrings look amazing and I would love to make a pair or two.

  46. Brenda Potts on August 15, 2011 7:01 am

    Sherry Serafini’s work is amazing and I would really love to learn some of her techniques and apply them to my jewelry. I would love to have this book. Thank you.

  47. Melinda Parsons on August 15, 2011 7:34 am

    I love making jewelry and this looks like it would be a great asset for me to have in my beading library!

  48. Janel on August 15, 2011 7:40 am

    Laura’s work has always fascinated me. It’s so rich and structural. Also, there’s just something so fun and macabre about wearing prosthetic eyes as jewelry!

  49. Mary Kimnach on August 15, 2011 7:47 am

    All three of these authors are so well respected for their work! I have to say that I really like Sherry Serafini’s designs. They are so imaginative.

  50. Lindsay Wisecup on August 15, 2011 7:56 am

    I have had but a peak of all three books and they are truly masterpieces. I would love to see more of Sherri Serafini’s purses. They rock!

  51. Sara Hanna on August 15, 2011 7:56 am

    Lately, with my beadwork I have been lost in a fog. For over 25 years I had a career and then the business closed. Before my pink slip, I had been beading off and on, but only in my spare time. Now that I found myself out of work, I beaded feverously for over a year! I beaded just to bead. I couldn’t bead fast enough. Then one day our small town Bead Shop owner asked if I would like to teach a class. Wow, it was such a perfect fit! I loved it! To be honest, teaching didn’t even feel like work. It was a pleasure and a joy to share with my eager students what I had learned beadweaving. Then after 10 years of business, the bead shop closed its doors. :o( That was a year ago and I haven’t beaded much since. I was so inspired sharing with my students and all the customers. I just don’t feel the motivation I had a year ago. As I sit here today I realize that ART needs to be shared! Maybe with some eye candy and instructions from Laura McCabe, Sherry Serafini and Maggie Meister, I can gain my mojo back. Through their self confidence maybe I’ll be inspired to move forward.

  52. Layla Gravely on August 15, 2011 8:01 am

    All three books look wonderful. But I think that I would enjoy the Sensational Bead Embroidery. I am fairly new to beading, but I have been embroidering since I was a little girl when my Grandmother taught me. I really love both and would love to combine the two to come up with my own style of embroidering to carry on my Grandmother’s tradition. Thank you for the opportunity.

  53. Colleen White on August 15, 2011 8:01 am

    The Classical Elegance looks amazing! I love antique designs, from the earliest civilizations to Victorian. So glad to see these wonder designs being revived! And the Embellished Beading is just plain gorgeous! I would love to expand my skills with these.

  54. Marge Beebe on August 15, 2011 8:11 am

    It is really hard to decide between Laura McCabe and Sherry Serafini. I love both of their work, but prefer Sherry’s work because it is more in line with the type of beadwork I tend to do.

  55. Carol Gregoire on August 15, 2011 8:25 am

    They look like great books. I’m always looking to learn new things or spark ideas that I can use in my creations.

  56. Marlena on August 15, 2011 9:13 am

    Oh these are all so gorgeous. So inspiring!

  57. Jen H on August 15, 2011 10:03 am

    I would love to win all three of these titles, but I guess I would have to say that Sherry Serafini’s is the first one I would dive into. I’ve collected a few beautiful cabochons, and been waiting for the right time to work with them. :) Thanks for the chance!

  58. Gina H on August 15, 2011 10:10 am

    All three books are great. The one that I want the most is Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance. I love the looks she creates. Thank you for the chance to win!

  59. Karla Baker on August 15, 2011 11:52 am

    Ooo, hard question. I love Sherry and Laura’s work…not that familiar with Maggie’s. But if I had to pick one artist, it would probably have to be Sherry Serafini. The color palettes she uses and the her meticulous bead placement has always made her one of my favorites.

  60. Mary Mac on August 15, 2011 12:25 pm

    This is a great set of books. Would love to win and get started on a new project.

  61. Brianda on August 15, 2011 12:27 pm

    This is my all time hobby, I would love to win those books!

  62. Suzanne on August 15, 2011 12:34 pm

    I love the thought of creating museum inspired pieces, so I’m most drawn to Classical Elegance.

  63. Debbie Lam on August 15, 2011 12:35 pm

    All three books look fantastic! I would love to start some new projects and I would dive into the Embellished Beadweaving one first! I would love to do more beadweaving!

  64. Bonnie Hurst on August 15, 2011 12:37 pm

    Sherry Sarafini Is the one I would choose. I can picture myself learning from her,and I have wanted to learn bead embroidery since the first time I saw it. At this particular time my favorite is chain maille, and I can see in my head ways to incorporate chain with the embroidery process. Also, the photo with Steven Tyler was candy for the eyes..

  65. Cynthia on August 15, 2011 1:10 pm

    Very interesting!

  66. Kathy B on August 15, 2011 1:28 pm

    Choose just one?!! so hard. But I think I would choose Maggie Meister as I would like to learn more about her history-inspired designs.

  67. Ronda on August 15, 2011 2:19 pm

    Maggie Meisters “Classical Elegance.” I have had an opportunity to go to Italy several times and I love the architecture and history. Would love to have this book!

  68. kera bell on August 15, 2011 8:07 pm

    I like embellished bead weaving because it makes pretty designs.

  69. Deborah Bergen on August 15, 2011 9:23 pm

    I was so exited to see the titles of the book that I would love to win.
    I have been collecting Cabochons and practicing weaving.
    To have those books in my collection would be a dream come true.
    So hard to pick just one, here I go: I have one of Sherry’s books and one of Laura’s so i would go with Maggie Meisters.

  70. joann loos on August 15, 2011 10:31 pm

    Wow! You make this a hard choice! I love all 3 designers….

    If I had to choose, I’d pick Maggie Meister. I love how she interprets ancient designs and makes the accessible for current fashions.

  71. Jenean on August 15, 2011 11:46 pm

    All 3 books look interesting but the one that catches my eye is the Sensational Bead Embroidery book. This book would help me to expand my beading technique.

  72. Shaiha on August 16, 2011 9:01 am

    I am interested in Sherry Sarafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery because it looks to be a way to start in this art form

  73. Juliet A on August 16, 2011 10:10 am

    Laura McCabe’s Embellished Beadweaving looks fantastic! I love the way she takes traditional stitches and pushes them to the next level!

  74. Christina on August 16, 2011 1:41 pm

    I think the Sensational Bead Embroidery book looks really interesting:)

  75. CathyH on August 17, 2011 7:47 am

    All three look awesome! I would love the Sensational Bead embroidery book! Thanks!

  76. Carrie Clark on August 17, 2011 12:23 pm

    I am so excited about these books that I think I’m tingling!

  77. Angela Davis on August 17, 2011 6:33 pm

    I’ve been wanting to expand my jewelry making! I’ve read one of these books before from a friend and really loved it! Thank you for the opportunity to win!!!

  78. Charlene Cullinane on August 17, 2011 6:52 pm

    Sherry Serafini and her Sensational Bead Embroidery interested me most. She is so unique, talented, full of passion and WOW, what a following she has! Steven Tyler!! Awesome

  79. Kay on August 17, 2011 6:54 pm

    Oh, all look FAB! But, as a lover of museum collections, and history in general, I am particularly interested in Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance. I am in the process of moving to a smaller town and won’t know anyone when I get there. I will have plenty of time for reading and beading!

  80. Terase on August 17, 2011 8:37 pm

    All of these gals have a special gift to share! I love all of it. I think IF I had to pick just one it would be Maggie … I can picture me in her place.

  81. Deanna on August 17, 2011 10:31 pm

    Sensational Bead Embroidery sounds the most interesting to me. I would like to try some small embellished quilts or fabric collages.

  82. jessica p on August 18, 2011 5:38 am

    I would love to have the Sensational Bead Embroidery in my library!

  83. Joanne on August 18, 2011 8:26 pm

    Beautiful projects

  84. Joanne Schultz on August 19, 2011 11:44 am

    I’m most interested in Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance. I go for simpler designs, rather than elaborate ones, so this would be the perfect book for me!! I love this series of Lark books and currently have two of them!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  85. Claire on August 20, 2011 5:51 am

    there are great things to do in these books and I would be a very proud person to beable to win them… Thanks

  86. Melinda on August 20, 2011 4:13 pm

    I’ve wanted to expand my beading knowledge, so these would be a great help!

  87. Jeanne on August 21, 2011 7:47 am

    Although I would love all three books without a doubt, I had to pick Sherri’s Sarafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery as the one I would read first. I love beading and I love embroidery, to be able to make beautiful things combining the two things I love to do is just a huge bonus for me. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway.

  88. Nissa on August 21, 2011 10:34 am

    I would absolutely LOVE to get my hands on Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance. I love bead weaving and to have an awesome artist’s view on the technique is priceless! Not to mention the beautiful museum inspired pieces!

  89. Jane S. on August 21, 2011 11:39 am

    Wow what a difficult decision trying to pick one over any of the others! I think I’d have to go with Maggie’s book though, as I often derive inspiration from history.

  90. Ruth on August 21, 2011 3:23 pm

    I have McCabes book Embellished Beadweaving and it’s awesome, but I really would love to get Sherri’s book into my masterclass library.

  91. adrienne zedella on August 21, 2011 9:18 pm

    love the classical elegance- would love to learn how to make these!

  94. Nicole Sender on August 23, 2011 9:51 pm

    Embellished Beadweaving would have to be it for me. Love the cover!

  116. Lee on August 26, 2011 9:29 am

    The Embellished Beadweaving would be very helpful in using my Swarovski beads. All 3 Books would be great for all my beads and findings!

    I would love to read Laura’s Embellished bead book as I am combining my photography with my beading skills to combine some beautiful items. I could certainly use her expertise and guidance in this often difficult project! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I think the embellished beading book would be very interesting..would love to win and expand my horizons

    They are are great artists. It is hard to pick one, but I would have to say I like Maggie Meister’s stuff best. I love the way she puts a new spin on traditional designs.

  121. Ruby on August 26, 2011 1:09 pm

    The Embellished Beadwork would be my choice (although any of the three would be fantastic to own). Thanks so much for this opportunity!

    I don’t have a clue, but to have so many ideas in one place is FANTASTIC!

    thanks!

    An offer to receive 400 pages of incredible bead ecstasy inspiration?!! I had to bite my hand to contain my excitement. I discovered bead weaving later in life than perhaps others (56). Progress has been been steady. Soon I will be able to take on projects by these incredible bead artists!! Like the carrot dangling before the horse, even one of the books offered will inspire me to keep moving forward. What a fantastic gift this will be for one lucky reader!! I’ll keep my fingers crossed. Just seeing this offer has brightened my day! Thank you

    Sensational Beadworking beccause of the step by step instructions for 25 projects. I learn best with hands on and sometimes have 2 left thumbs.

  125. patricia on August 26, 2011 4:31 pm

    I would LOVE to get any of these incredible books. I’m sure there is great inspiration avaliable in each one. Thanks for having giveaways.

  126. Carole Gaither on August 26, 2011 6:53 pm

    I have seen the Maggie Meister’s books and thought they were wonderful!

  127. Claire on August 27, 2011 4:31 am

    These are such great books, with so many projects. I am one of “125″ other people that also think this, but I hope that I am the one and only one that gets to own these books…

  128. Claire on August 27, 2011 4:32 am

    one of “126″ now

  129. Liza Day on August 27, 2011 4:36 am

    This is a great opportunity to learn from the masters!

  130. Elizabeth Visak on August 27, 2011 7:22 am

    I hope I win these wonderful books!

  131. Liz on August 27, 2011 9:16 am

    Wow, thanks for the chance to win a book from any of these three talented ladies!

    I would like the Maggie Meister’s Classical Elegance the most because the designs are less elaborate and there’s more of a chance I could convince my sister to make some of the designs for me from it :-)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  133. Sherry Conrad on August 27, 2011 10:30 am

    Embellished Beadweaving is my choice although all look fabulous, I think with Embellished Beadweaving you would be able to make heirlooms for gifts that the receiver would be proud to pass down in their family.

  134. Lynn Endres on August 27, 2011 2:21 pm

    Classical Elegance…because when I think beadwork, I don’t think “classical” or “elegance” and I would love to see what they’ve done to create these elements!

  135. Jessica Givan on August 27, 2011 2:42 pm

    im trying to start a business and would like some good staple books to have in my “library

  136. Ed Nemmers on August 27, 2011 2:51 pm

    Classical Elegance; my friend Carole creates this art and this would be for her.

  137. Jaque R. on August 27, 2011 3:22 pm

    I like Maggie Meister’s designs. The colors, textures and presentation have the feel of Victorian America. :-) Thank you.

  138. kelly knapp on August 27, 2011 9:48 pm

    Wow. these are really nice. I am facinated with Sensational Bead Embroidery. I love wearable art, and to be able to create my own sounds fabulous. Thanks for the opportunity

  139. spirit_kim on August 27, 2011 11:55 pm
