I'm in a book -- Easy Beading Vol. 6

I was thrilled to get my copy of Kalmbach Books "Easy Beading Vol.6" today for a number of reasons, one of those reasons being I have two projects in it! The book is fantastic, a treasure trove of tutorials in all types of mediums -- the perfect book for those who are both beginners and old-hats alike. It has more than 80 projects and 1,000 color photos so you won't be at a loss for inspiration!


On page 152 you'll find my "Pretty in Pink" necklace, a simple and easy piece to make using vintage lucite from The Beadin' Path.


Then on page 177 (and also featured in the index, woot!) is my "Clusters of Color" necklace, which is my favorite cha-cha style, this time using copper chain and a mix of purple, yellow, and caramel bead soup (I do indeed love my bead soup!)


The book is on sale at Kalmbach's site as well as your local book store, so check it out!
