I Love This Series of Books from LARK

Winner of SEVEN 500 Series books!
October 08, 2010, 09:30 am - Posted by Ray Hemachandra More than 220 people left comments on our blog post hoping for a chance to win seven fantastic 500 books from Lark Jewelry & Beading!

We offered a fantastically diverse bundle of seven non-jewelry books: the newly released and incredibly beautiful 500 Judaica, along with 500 Metal Vessels, 500 Enameled Objects, 500 Knives, 500 Beaded Objects, 1000 Glass Beads, and 400 Polymer Clay Designs.

Our winner is Sharon Driscoll. In her comment, Sharon wrote, “I love this series of books. I use them all of the time to stoke my creative energy when it ebbs. The Driscoll library of heavenly inspiration and learning needs some new additions.” Thank you to everyone in the Lark Jewelry & Beading community who left a comment, and Sharon, we hope you and yours love the books!

So, do I love this? OMG - Yes I do. It's not that I just love winning something, who doesn't! But I truly adore this line of books by Lark Publishing. It is eye candy to the extreme and it really doesn't matter what the subject matter is because a graceful line in a vessel, or a pattern put in polymer clay, or Judaica can be reinterpreted into a great jewelry design. Good art works by other artists are inspiring. Good design is good design no matter what the subject matter. Thank You Lark books - my collection of these books has now grown and my smile is ear to ear.

Oh Sharon, I'm sorry that I didnt see this earlier.
I just want to say HUGE congratulations!! What a fabulous win.... I honestly can't think of anything that I'd rather win than books.

Then again you are dealing with the person whose most highly prized find & subsequent purchase while over in Australia were 3 USA Beading & Wire magazines that we cant get!
