What a great giveaway! I teach beading, wirework and metal clay classes, and these would be great to share with my students! I'm always looking for new books to inspire students just starting out in jewelry making.ReplyDelete
I just found your blog today and I liked you on FB. You make beautiful things! I really like your work. I've worked in glass, metal, and clay sculpture for many years and only recently started working smaller and making jewelry. I still lean toward using all of the materials I'm used to. But I have a lot to learn! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks to all for participating and welcome to the new friends to my blog and Facebook page.ReplyDelete

So lucky to land on this page. I greatly appreciated this blog because I am also making jewelries and it's not just a hobby, it's a combination of arts and business. Looking forward also to fit with the trend nowadays and the style or fashion must be "in". Great to know that there are books that also give some tutorials for jewelry making. I'll probably go for it. Thanks for this informative and very attractive post Lorena.ReplyDelete
