Lucky, Lucky, Lucky....

......enough to win this fabulous book. Lisa from A Bead a Day had a giveaway on her blog a few weeks ago and I was one of the winners. My book arrived yesterday and it's fabulous. Just the colours on the front cover are divine, all beachy and summery.

Lisa has used photos from her vacations, unusual objects, everyday items and a number of things you wouldn't normally give a second glance to as her inspiration for the pieces in the book. Using the colours, textures, skylines (City Style is one of my favourites) to create beautiful pieces of jewelry. Fantastic idea to get those juices flowing when you've hit a block.Not only are the pieces beautiful but her instructions are so easy to follow. The photos are wonderful and each step is very clear cut.
Each new design has an inspiration tip on the page, like getting your camera out and taking a walk around your neighborhood, or looking around your home for different patterns and colour combinations in cushions or furniture or art work on your walls. What a great idea!
It's available in Australia at Angus & Robertson, Dymocks and Fishpond so give yourself and treat and buy a copy.
Thanks Lisa for the wonderful book, I love it. Now I'm off to scope out my house for colour combos and patterns.
