I just realized that my blog turned 4 years old last month! Time Flies! Also, my last post was my 1000th post! Two reasons to celebrate! So, this week, I will be running another Lark Books giveaway! Here is your chance to win a copy of Laura McCabe‘s latest book – Embellished Beadweaving!
For those who may not be familiar with Laura’s beadwork, let me just say that she really was the first beader who opened my eyes to the possibilities of beading as an art form. Her works are uniquely ambitious and oddly beautiful. Embellished Beadweaving gives readers an insight into her creative soul as well as her educational background. Here’s a sneek peak:
First, I love the beginning chapter entitled ‘Beads Through History’. To really gain a full understanding of the ancient craft of beading, you must first learn about its origins and why humans are continually drawn to beads.
Next, you will learn how to make some of Laura’s beaded embellishments. Instructions for these are clearly written & illustrated! Throughout the rest of the book, you will be in awe of Laura’s jewelry designs.
Learn how to make elaborate earrings, bead-encrusted bracelets, and eye-popping necklaces. And, to top it all off, you will also be inspired by the gorgeous gallery of bead art featuring other artists’ beadwork at the end of the book.
If you are fascinated by Laura’s beadwork as much as I am, or the art of beadweaving in general, then this book is for you. I promise you will not be disappointed!
