Beads in Motion

August 6th, that is the day that Amazon is set to release Beads in Motion.

However, wonderfully, the Look Inside feature is enabled and you can have a rather extensive look at some of the interior pages.

On the left is one of my favorite pair of earrings to wear and the center is a stacked set of components with a center rivoli all of which slide up and down on a mesh chain.

 The Contents pages include each project and page number which I think is an excellent feature.  Here you see six pairs of earrings from long and dangly, my favorite to slight more subdued and elegant.  The bottom right is a Victorian slide bracelet that I adore.



I'm on the fence about selling the book, although I know many of you have expressed an interest in buying it from the author.  I will keep you posted on my decision, but in the meantime please ask your local bead store to consider carrying it.  I do hope our paths will cross at which point I will be happy to sign your copy!

I see new components to play with. My unsolicited advice, don't sell the book. It's so hard to compete with Amazon and it really doesn't fit into your new business model of being able to have more me time. You know we always want immediate gratification and that ties you down. As far as the inscription goes, perhaps something on your web site that where you scan in one of your postcards and a signature. A person can request on your web site by entering your name. You can have a few message inscription options they can choose from (also scanned in). The whole thing can be automated and then a e-mail gets created and sent to them. They can print out at home on the paper option of their choice or go to Kinko's and get printed. Apparently I'm full of advice today...

I meant by entering their name and e-mail.

Congratulations on another great book !! You could sign book plates and mail them to people, like Kate McKinnon did for Contemporary Geometric Beadwork.

thanks Diane, but I'm not so sure I'm up to the task having left my IT career behind many years ago!
