If you haven't heard of Lark books, well you have now, and you should know about them as they publish a wide variety of craft books. My favorite line of their books is the 500 series. They showcase 500 of the most unique, interesting and well made pieces in several categories of crafts. 500 bracelets, 500 brooches, 500 earrings, and 500 necklaces are some of their titles. They have instructions on how you can submit for any of these books and they have a jewelry design challenge: 30 minute necklaces. Deadline for entry is August 3, 2009.
