Book Giveaway!

Chris Franchetti Michaels, (you may know her as beadwork.about.com‘s fabulous guide) recently released a new jewelry making book “Teach Yourself VISUALLY More Jewelry Making”. Now, I know this blog is dedicated to weaving on a loom, but I’m sure many of you are multi-talented when it comes to your crafting skills and I wanted to offer one reader a FREE copy of Chris’ book!Β 

Not that I need new crafts to take up, but this book has some seriously tempting projects. From learning wire jewelry making techniques to bending and shaping metals to making your own rivets to using chain, to working with leather (that tempts me the most… do you think my husband would mind if I turned our bedroom into storage for craft supplies?) and clay and resin and… lots more. Twelve chapters are filled with easy-to-follow instructions to teach techniques as well as projects. Amazon will give you a little sneak peak (click “Click to Look Inside”). This book is the follow-up to Chris’ first book, which I haven’t read but I’m sure is fantastic, “Teach Yourself VISUALLY Jewelry Making and Beading“.

    What a fabulous name of a book! I think jewelry making does rely on our visual sense. Some of my favorite books are those that do have easy-to-follow instructions that teach techniques and shows finished projects. “Teach Yourself VISUALLY More Jewelry Making” seems like just the kind of book to have to refer to over and over again. What a great giveaway. Thank you.

    That looks like a really great book. I'd love to have it in my library. And as far as your husband and turning the bedroom into a craft storage room, the key is to do it gradually, just a little at a time. Trust me πŸ™‚

    You are RIGHT, I do not need new crafts, but who can RESIST!!! I LOVE learning new things! My Mirrix Loom has not gotten a workout yet, perhaps, some techniques in the book can be created on my Loom! I would LOVE to find out!! πŸ˜‰
