Review and giveaway: Rachel Nelson-Smith’s Bead Riffs

Lark Jewelry & Beading is giving you a chance to win Rachel Nelson-Smith’s Bead Riffs, the newest title in the Beadweaving Master Class Series!

Rachel says, “Beading is like jazz. There’s a multitude of approaches to take with it.” Comparing learning stitches to learning a musical instrument, over time and with experience a master can explore and let their ability and personality shape their work in both jazz and beading. Using peyote and right angle weave, Rachel’s book will help you master the stitches, guide you through making 23 projects, and then allow you to create your own bead riffs. Rachel says “every project contains unexpected combinations and reflects my willingness to thread off the beaten path and attempt the untried.” The “Riff It” sidebars in the book encourage you to do the same. The only thing Rachel’s book is missing is a jazz CD of her vocals to enjoy while you bead!

Jump over to Lark Jewelry & Beading for a free project from Bead Riffs now and don’t forget to enter at the Lark Jewelry & Beading website for a chance at Rachel’s book, too.)

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment by October 2. Sorry, the giveaway is open to US residents only.
