Kalmbach Books is giving you a chance to win a copy of two of their exciting new titles: Contemporary Cube Bead Designs by Virginia Jensen and The Absolute Beginners Guide: Making Wire Jewelry from Martine Callaghan!
Contemporary Cube Bead Designs will teach you ladder stitch, herringbone, step stitch, and other stitches with 29 fun projects. Working with flat beads, many of these projects have a smooth, supple texture. Mixing other bead shapes into the projects, Virginia creates interesting three-dimensional pieces that have a less rhythmic texture but lots of visual appeal. Master these techniques with Virginia and you’ll be crafting really exquisite finished pieces like the ones featured in this book, too.
Making Wire Jewelry from Kalmbach’s Absolute Beginners Guide series will have you creating gorgeous wire jewelry in a jiffy. This book truly tells you everything you need to know to get started! With 29 detailed projects and ideas for variations, there’s no end to the creative places Martine can guide you as you begin working with wire.
