I am just getting into bead embroidery having already fallen for off-loom bead weaving. I would love this book! Thanks for the giveaway.

I use seed beads all the time, I bezel cabs, I make beaded chains to hang pendants from, I use various stitches to make necklaces and bracelets

I've used seeds in peyote cuff bracelets, small beaded art projects, and most recently with woven copper wire. I'd love to win Sherry's book!

I would love a copy of this book. Ive been drooling over it for awhile now. I work with seed beads the most of all my beads with size 15's being my favorite. I think you can do almost anything with seed beads!

Yes, I work with seed beads (11 & 15's!)..as well as Delica's (11 & 15's). I do bead embroidery and I've been just amazed at Sherry's work. I too would LOVE this book to inspire me even more!

I use seed beads often, mostly off-loom bead weaving but also some bead embroidery (not as much as I'd like to). Right now I'm mostly doing embellished RAW bezels for rivolis. Sometimes I feel like trying loomwork as well. Not so much looming patterns but using a mixture of bead sizes and shapes to create textured beadwork.

And that book is one I've been drooling over for weeks now. It looks so yummy!

Seed beds are so sensual--love playing with them. Also love looking at what can be created with them--Sherry is a great artist as is Marcia DeCoster, along with many others. Great giveaway, thanks for the opportunity to win this fabulous book. CJ

When I started beading I bought seed beads but also gemstones and other beads. I so wish I'd saved my money & bought only delicas! I love those beads so so much! I still haven't done much but am reading everything I can get my hands on. I'd love to win this book!

I've tried beadweaving with seed beads a long time ago but, I'm not really great at it. I admire those that can make such artistic pieces using these small beads...I love beaded bezel cabochons!
What a wonderful giveaway...thanks for the chance of winning the book!

I mostly work with seed beads and am a huge fan of traditional beadweaving techniques, but I love to find new ways to use them. Most of my work involves weaving seed beads into metal. I've dabbled in bead embroidery, but I'd love to learn more!

I don't work with seed beads, but would still love to add this book to my collection. Looks beautiful!

I have swooned over Sherry Sarafini's bead work for some time now. She makes beads appear fluid. Thank you for extending this wonderful opportunity to own a signed copy of her book. I will also post this comment on the original post for this giveaway. Thank you again and Happy beading...
P.S. I was confused on which day to comment so I am duplicating this. Thank you again...

Please pick me! I have lusted after this book for ages but it's not going to be out in the UK for a wee while yet. I have Sherry (and Heidi)'s first book and it is AWESOME. Thanks for this giveaway!

I have a strand of seed beads made of turquoise. I'm planing on sewing to a pair of handstamped sterling silver disk earrings. Thank you for all of your ideas, articles and give aways. I always come away from your blog with lots of ideas.
