GIVEAWAY!!!

Background
Cindy Wimmer wrote the best new jewelry-design book, The Missing Link.  She held a Blog Hop Tour just a couple of weeks ago.  I was very careful NOT to leave comments, as I already have the book!  But, Christine Damm wrote the most lovely blog post about her friendship with Cindy, that I caved...left a comment...and I WON!  Thank you, Christine and Cindy!

The Book

(Source - www.cindywimmer.com)
There are 30 different link designs, categorized for every level of wire work - from simple, to more complex. I would be remiss in not mentioning the stunning designs made with those links...swoon!

Here is just a small sampling of the links that I have made.


The Giveaway
Since I already have the book, I'd like to give away the copy I won (I asked Cindy - she said it was okay with her!)

How to Enter!
Two ways to enter!
1. Leave a comment on this blog post - equals 1 entry
2. Post a link to this blogpost on Facebook - equals 1 entry

For each task above, you must leave a separate comment on my blog!  I am not one for long contests, so I will pick a winner by Friday - November 8th.

Thanks for stopping by...best of luck!
