Did you know that in 2010, Totally Twisted: Innovative Wirework + Art Glass Jewelry was the only "beadworking" book released by Interweave? It's true! The others were considered "metalwork" and "stamping". About.com is having a bragging-rights competition for The Best Of ...(different various craft topics). Nominations for The Best of Beadwork are being accepted until Feb 4th 2011 (click the orange text to be taken to the ballet). If you love my book as much as I do, would you please take a moment to nominate it?! While at the link, I also nominated a few of my other favorite beadwork things. Bead Fest is my favorite Beading Show, The Beadin' Path is an awesome resource for vintage beads, and Etsy rocks as the online source for specialty beads. And hey, if you took one of my classes, you could pop my name in as your favorite teacher too.
Once all the nominations are in, the voting will begin! Winners don't "get" anything, just bragging rights. That is, seriously, the best kind of prize! I can hear it now in conversation... "yeah, I wrote the BEST beadwork book according to the readers of About.com". I like the sounds of that!!
