Jewelry Design in Nature by Heather Powers and Giveaway

My bookshelf is full of craft books. I love all of them but am especially fond of the books by those I know. This week, I'm happy to brag about Heather Power's new book, "Jewelry Designs from Nature: Woodlands, Gardens, Sea."



I won't pretend to be objective about Heather's book. I have the pleasure of being one of the founding editors of Art Bead Scene, a jewelry blog headed by Heather Powers. Her book reflects the network of bead artists who often have work featured on ABS. The front cover is a pleathora is diverse art beads from many different art beadmakers (myself included).

If your a big fan of Heather's style, this is the book for you. Heather's designs are inspired, ebullient jewelry. We are indeed lucky to see inside her design process and re-create some of her luscious art jewelry for ourselves.

In honor of Heather's accomplishment and our good fortune at being able to see inside her design procress, I'm hosting a giveaway of the ivory double dips featured on the cover of her book.

Leave a comment and you'll be eligible to receive two (2) of the ivory double dips to use in your next Heather Power's design! You can enter more than once if you post this to your blog, Facebook and/or Tweet it.  Just come back here and leave the link to you additional post and I'll enter your name more than once.  I'll post a winner here next Monday, October 3. You can enter until midnight EST, Sunday October 2nd.

I've got this book on my wish list. The last time I was in B&N it was not there. I'm sure all the copies flew out the store the moment they hit the shelves.

I love your sweet double-dips!

My pre-order copy finally came on Friday - late to Canada. I loved seeing your double dip as the toggle on one of the designs. I've only had a quick flip through so far but can't wait to really sit down with it.
