I’m excited to announce another signed book giveaway. The book is Creative Native American Beading – Contemporary Interpretations of Traditional Motifs by Theresa Flores Geary, Ph.D. It’s from Lark Books and is a beautiful book that teaches traditional Native American beadwork using contemporary materials and tools. There are beautiful and fun projects for all skill levels, ranging from beginner to advanced. The projects include jewelry and decorative items for the home.
One of the projects in the book is Huichol-Lace Sun Catchers. They are very pretty, could be made with beads in whatever size you are comfortable working with, and then hung in a window or used as ornaments. I made a pair of earrings using this technique. I modified the project a little bit by adding a dangle at the bottom and a loop up top for the earwires. To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this blog post sometime before Tuesday 11/24/09 at 7:00 p.m. EST (GMT-5) and leave a valid e-mail address. Good luck to everyone, I think this is a book you’ll enjoy.
