MAGGIE MEISTER'S CLASSICAL ELEGANCE GIVEAWAY

This giveaway will remain on top so scroll down for daily posts

Hi Everyone!
I am especially happy to be reviewing and giving this book away to one very lucky winner.
Every beader needs this book!

Maggie Meister
Classical Elegance
ISBN 978-1-60059-691-9
Lark Crafts
Sterling Publishing Co. Inc
New York



This superb instructional beading book is not only to learn from but to keep on the coffee table to admire at a whim. The pieces designed by Maggie in her new book are direct inspirations from the old masters of art. In my own beading and art classes that I teach, I am always trying to get across that “simplicity equals elegance.” Meaning, that a piece of art or jewelry doesn't have to be that complex to show style and sophistication. Maggie has captured this very well. Each piece is done with simple bead stitches sewn together to create majestic jewelry.

In the beginning of the 127 page hardbound book, Maggie instructs how to combine different beading stitches so that the reader can accomplish her patterns perfectly. I enjoyed this book very much not just for the beading, but for the personal information that Maggie shares. I know that once you have this book in hand you will discover, imagine, and incorporate.
