Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry - Review and Give Away

Ray Hemachandra selected 500 stunning pieces of beaded jewelry for this sumptuous book. The photographs are highly professional and a number of detail shots are included. It is a real piece of eye candy and provides inspiration for all beaders.

The jewelry represents a wide variety of styles and techniques by both well known jewelry artists as well as lesser known artists, so the complexity varies, but not the high quality.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in beading or jewelry, either as a collector or creator.

If you are interested in owning a copy of this book, leave me a comment on this blog by Sept 15 and a way to contact you (USA only)  and I will  randomly draw a name to send the book to.
