cover art of Adornments and Exploring Resin JewelryI have two more fabulous titles from North Light Books to share with you, dear readers! These books would make great gifts or more ideas for hand-made gifts from you.

Adornments by Myra Callan (Twigs and Honey) is everything the cover photo promises – soft, romantic and dreamy accessories for you to make with simple sewing and millinery techniques. The twenty projects include necklaces, fascinators, belts, earrings and more! Myra’s work is made of beautiful materials including linen, silk, lace and other delicate beauties such as feathers and beads. Lots of gorgeous photos and easy to follow instructions will have you crafting these beautiful projects in no time.

Next up is Exploring Resin Jewelry: Simple Techniques for 25 Projects by Heidi Boyd. Heidi shares her tips for getting the best results every time with resin to create your very own personalized treasures. The 25 fun projects she walks you through in this book will give you a broad overview of what resin can do for your jewelry making. Learn basic techniques and materials needed and you’ll be creating with resin like a pro. Photos, tiny objects, and other ephemera are ready to be captured into your custom, one of kind pieces using Heidi’s techniques.

For a chance to win both fabulous titles, simply leave a comment. The giveaway ends November 18. Sorry, this giveaway is open to US mailing addresses only.

    Thank you for this giveaway of these two interesting books. They both seem to offer some nice, unique ideas! As a painter, I have been trying to find ways of using my painting ability to fashion some pins. I am thinking that the resin book may have some ideas in it that I may be able to use. Love the website! Thanks, again!

    I love to craft jewelry and accessories but need to learn more techniques and find more resources to expand my crafting education. Living in the Washington DC area it seems everyone is too busy to enjoy creativity so books and web site like CraftGossip are my inspiration and education. Thanks for offering such a great selection of tips, ideas, and products.

  29. Theresa on November 5, 2012 9:17 am

    Sounds like two great books!! I have always wanted to try resin—always sounds complicated. I would be interested to see what kind of headpieces the Adornments book contains. I want some small pieces to wear to places like the ballet or symphony that won’t interfere with the vision of the people sitting behind me. A lot of my hats are too big to wear.
