  9. HI!!! I want this book!!!!!!
    I'm Adrienne from Cleveland, OH. Single mom - 2 teen boys. I am a craft junkie!!! I make wreaths, sprays, arrangements, and pass them out for gifts.
    I draw, paint oils, acrylics, make handcrafted ornaments, homemade one-of-a-kind wedding signs for whoever wants one (usually a wedding gift for someone) - and have a collection of art supplies to make whatever I want when I need to.
    I like to dabble at everything except making jewelry! I'm dying to try it!!
    I have jewelry-making supplies waiting for me to try my hand at making things - I just Don't Know How To Do It!! I don't know how to make a proper knot so that the item won't fall apart!!! I don't know what the protocol is to measuring to make a uniform and proper bracelet. I have wire and cutters and beads of all kinds all organized - I just have a phobia about making something, giving it to someone only to have it fall apart! I would pore over every inch of this book and absorb knowledge so I could start making beautiful pieces!
    I would love to have a little business of my own someday in the next few years to help make ends meet for myself and my family and to keep my creative juices flowing. It's been a goal of mine for years! I love creating things - it is so inspirational and fulfilling!

    Please enter me into this awesome giveaway! This is right up my alley!!!!!

  12. Hi! My name is Karen and I live in Israel. I learned everything I know about jewely making from the internet and I love it!
    It gives me so many ways to express myself.
    I love working with real stones, silver and goldfilled wire and crystal beads.
    I've always been into crafts, since I was very young. You name it, I've worked with it! I would so love to win this book to take me to a "higher" level in my jewelry making! =)

  13. Hello! My name is Maria Hawes and I reside in Corning NY the home of Corning Glass and your Corell Ware lol.. I have seen you on the crochet crowd and have watched your blog and I have to say I am very interested in learning out to make jewelry just never had anyone to really explain to me how to make them. Reason for me wanting to learn and applying to win this book is to help supplement my income as I was laid off from my job at Corning Inc. with this down spiraling economy and jobs are scares here in NY as I am sure they are around the country. I also have a 15 yr old daughter that loves to do hemp jewlery and beach jewelry and thought this would be a good additive to her growing that area along with myself. All in all I would love to win this book. Have an awesome day!

In better words...would love to win this gift!!! Best Christmas present!!! Take care!

  17. I'm Lisa, and I'm from the South--North Carolina to be exact. I specialize in jewelry, which I've been doing for 15 years,even though I do a couple other things as well.

    Some of my designs have sold, and I'm moving toward selling my work part time as a second career.

    The book really looks fantastic...lots of inspiration.

  18. I'm Cynthia from Arizona. Your kits are wonderful and inspiring. A free book sounds great! Please choose me!

  19. My name is Shauna. I'm silly and I make jewelry and I knit. I'm in Toronto, so it would be really easy to get me that book. Plus, you haven't seen me in awhile, so maybe I'll get it because you miss me.

  20. My name is Wendy, and I've come to a couple of your classes at Creativ Festival in Toronto. I work very long hours, and it's really nice for me to be able to do this kind of stuff because it's easy to pick up and put down in between the things I have to do. One of my favorite pasttimes is looking through books, and discovering what else I could do on my next project.

  21. Yes, please...yes, please...yes, please!!! I would LOVE to have this book!!

  22. Hi Stephanie:
    I'm Jean Dilcock and have been a TBS member for about 4 years now. I am trying - with lots and lots of thread - to make old friends a one-of-a-kind Christmas gift of a bead-woven small Christmas tree. I'm finished, nearly blind and hoping that they will understand........oh well, we are, all of us, not in need of many things; so, I hope that they will remember it was made with love and that I'll be better in a few years.
    PS I'd love your book - I love jewellery
