Signed Geometric Beadwork by Jean Power for you?

Jean Power's bad fortune coupled with my good fortune means you could be very lucky indeed!

When Jean Power's book called Geometric Beadwork was released just a short while ago she and her crew were checking their list, but apparently they did it not twice but three times!  That meant I got 3 signed copies of her amazing new book!  When I told her about it she generously said I should keep them, because it didn't make sense to ship them back.  




When I suggested to her that I could do a giveaway and give her book some more recognition on this side of the pond she was all for it.  Did I tell you they're signed??!




First a quick review of this beautiful book:  colorful photos, large drawings, easy instructions to follow.  There are so many projects to keep you busy and inspire you to create your own through interpretation.  If you're a fan of seed beads and math or even just seed beads - you'll want to add this book to your library.  If you're anxiously awaiting the Contemporary Geometric Beadwork book being orchestrated by Kate McKinnon it includes some work by Jean Power, but not all the projects in her own book. 




So, it's Giveaway Time!  I haven't even unwrapped the books so you'll be getting them in their sealed condition with Royal Mail stamp.  Of course I'll be slipping them in to a U.S. stamped envelope.  Deadline for entry is 12 noon PST on January 2nd. 

Here are the entry rules:

Rule #1:  This is only open to Canadian and United States residents.  Be sure to include your email address if you are commenting anonymously so I can contact you if you win.

Rule #2:  You may enter as many times as you'd like.  Each entry (comment below as a separate "thoughtful impression") needs to include one of the following:

  1. Go to my ArtFire or Etsy shop and copy and paste the link of your favorite Honey from the Bee jewelry item as a "thoughtful impression" below.  (If you share your favorite item on your Facebook page or Pinterest - include that link below, too.)
  2. Do a post in your blog with a link to this blog post and copy and paste your blog post link into a "thoughtful impression" below.
  3. Become a fan of my Facebook page and let me know you have below.
  4. Share this blog post on your Facebook page, Stumbler, Twitter or ? and copy and paste that link below.
Good luck!   I'll announce the two winners January 3rd.

Love your work!! I found this unique necklace in your etsy shop that I just love! Great balance between the colorful glass discs against the brass.

This is a stunning necklace, and immediately caught my eye. I love the fact that it was a vintage drawer pull.

I now want this almost as much as I want Jean's book which is a whole whole lot! http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/515870

I love the way you seem to have a beaded buckle!

I posted my favorite item from your ETSY shop to my Pinterest page!

I was tempted to pick the same thing at your etsy shop as I did at artfire but thought that probably wasn't within the spirit of the game. So this is the one I picked:

I love the vintage brass with the lampwork. Brilliant.

Now I'm hoping all of your commenters (except one other) are given copies of Jean's book so they won't want it if they win. Fingers crossed.

Sally Anderson said...

I liked you on Facebook (and the minute I heard you were giving away copies of Jean's book)! I'm Sally Bohner Anderson on FB.
