I'm going to be giving away one copy of Jamie Cloud Eakins' book Bead Embroidery Jewelry Projects: Design And Construction, Ideas and Inspiration. Lark Craft generously donated one copy to me so that I can share my delight with Jamie's book with you. I've been using this book since the very first time I opened the package and dived in head first. I've learned so much from the book, and actually began to look at some of my previous necklaces to see if I could change their design to make them more stable and physically appealing. Jamie has really made me go into a tail spin with new ideas and indeed more inspiration. Click HERE to see my review on Bead Embroidery Jewelry Projects.
I am going to be giving away one copy to one person who leaves a comment on this blog post. You need to make sure I have a way to contact you to get shipping information from you. I have chose my birthday January 4th to be the date of the choosing of the winning name. Please check back here on January 4th to see if you are the lucky recipient of Jamie's newest book. Don't worry if you don't see your comment show up immediately as I have my blog comments set up so that I myself have to approve them after being spammed once. Thank you for you patience.
After reading Jamie's book, I took apart a necklace I made in August 2012 after my Grandmother's Death. The necklace was named Awake in the Dragon's Lair. Here is a picture of what the necklace looked like back in 2012:
And here is a picture of Dragon's Lair after reconfiguring the component pieces and working on making the piece more stable and not twisting and turning all the time
Of course, now I am bound to complete other necklaces after being influenced by Jamie's book and have even gotten out older projects wondering how I can construct them into a better configuration while not disturbing the original design. This is the next group of beads that are on my beading board:
