Book review and giveaway: Steel Wire Jewelry

Steel Wire Jewelry: Stylish Designs * Simple Techniques * Artful Inspiration

What better time could there be for trying out a new metal?  Well, actually, an old metal that is starting to gain a lot of favor: steel.  With the cost of gold and silver climbing to all-time highs, it's time to look more closely at the so-called base metals, and Brenda Schweder has put together an introduction to using this inexpensive dream material in Steel Wire Jewelry.

In the first part of the book, Brenda covers the properties of steel and what you will need to get started.  The steel wire designs that she shares in the project section of the book run from stylized and funky to classic and elegant.  I never thought I'd say "steel" and "elegant" in the same sentence, but there you have it!

***Free Stuff Alert!!!***

Would you like to have a copy of Steel Wire Jewelry?  Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered to win.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!

Please make sure that your link will lead me to an email address, or else I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  Deadline: April 13, 2011

I love using different metals. My favorite right now is copper, but steel looks like it would be a great metal to work with also. Would love a chance at this book.
