Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry ~ Book Review
(and an autographed copy giveaway)

Do you love jewelry?  Beautiful beads?
Are you like a kid in a candy store at the sight of colorful, wearable art?

Well, have I got the book for you!

This breathtaking gallery book from Lark Jewelry & Beading celebrates beaded jewelry with a dazzling kaleidoscope of eye candy from innovative artists all over the world.  It is simply delicious!

Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry takes you on an inspiring visual journey with 500 full-color photographs of beaded jewelry, necklaces, rings, bracelets, pins and earrings from more than 200 artists.  

Author and Editor Ray Hemachandra explains that Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry, "tells the story of a now fully developed artistic community with both striking design visions and ambitions and an irrepressible yet heart-centered personality.  I think it will be a mainstay on the coffee tables and bookshelves -- including yours -- of many beaders, jewelers, crafts and art fans for years to come."
