March Email Giveaway: Choose Your Book

chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-1aIn all the craziness that was the short month that was February…and the fact that I just started a new full-time job at the beginning of this month…combined to make me remiss on doing a monthly giveaway for my email subscribers. Sorry, friends!

But I’m back again with another great giveaway: this time of jewelry-making books.

These are high-level, technique-driven books…and if you want to take your jewelry-making to the next level, these are truly awesome. Here’s what’s up for giveaway this month:

March 2016 Email Subscriber Giveaway

This month you could win one of these books pictured:

WIN THIS: Metal Clay Jewelry  chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-2 chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-3 chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-4 chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-5

If you’ve ever wondered how to work with metal clay (Art Clay Silver or PMC, for example), this is the book for you! From techniques in working with metal clay to incorporating stones, using cork as a firing base, working with metal clay sheets, making simple rings to complex brooches and pendants…this book is comprehensive and fun. The projects are whimsical and unique – certain to spark many more ideas for other cool creations. You can also read more about Metal Clay Jewelry on Amazon here. Though the book is secondhand, it is in very good condition.

WIN THIS: Jewelry Making: Tips and Tricks of the Trade

chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-6 chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-7 chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-8 chic-steals-march-email-book-giveaway-9

If you’re serious about professional jewelry-making (or taking your hobby to the next level) – this is such a useful resource! Though the Tim McCreight books are often cited as the gold standard in metalsmithing and jewelry-making, this book I thought even better, with beautiful photos and projects to try. It is high-level, but it starts out easy and progresses so by the end of it you will be a true artisan. Read more details about Jewelry Making: Tips and Tricks of the Trade on Amazon. The book is in like new condition.

WIN THIS: The Art of Resin Jewelry

Sherri Haab is a prolific crafting author who isn’t afraid to dive into the more complex materials and techniques. In this book she covers the fun art of resin jewelry: from mixing, measuring, and coloring, to making your own custom molds, incorporating poly clay, making duplicates of jewelry you already have, encasing objects (like candy!) into your jewelry, and so much more. It’s a super fun, colorful addition to any crafting library. I’ve had this book for awhile so it is slightly used but still in very good condition. Read more about The Art of Resin Jewelry on Amazon here.

So…you’d like to know how to win? All you need to do is sign up to receive my weekly newsletter below:

Edit 4/6/16: Winners have been drawn and giveaway is officially closed. Congrats Eric, Nikki C., and Jen B.! Subscribe below for another chance to win some great prizes at the end of April!
