So happy to introduce….

BBJ1 (Medium)

My new book, Metalworking 101 for Beaders!!!  This is a book that I am so very proud of it brings tears to my eyes.  In college I discovered my passion for working with metal and we've had a love affair ever since.  This book will show you a very easy approach to metalworking so you can make your own findings to mix with your beads.  I wanted to make projects that look awesome with very little soldering.  

You may have caught me talking about Metalworking 101 on the TV show Beads Baubles and Jewels  (episode 1102) when I showed how to make easy button and hook clasps that blend in with your entire piece.  Like this!

I love good, happy endings in movies and jewelry!

Have a great weekend!



  1. Yay! That’s so very exciting! Congratulations!!!! šŸ™‚

  2. I can’t wait to play around with the techniques in this book!

  3. I have not been able to put this book down since I received it…I’m awed not only by your talent, but also by your teaching ability. (Now if only I could scrape some money together to buy some [more] necessities and “nice-to-haves” — not to mention the metals themselves!) I may end up pestering you with questions…especially now that you’re on Facebook! -Sarah (aka Saire)

  4. Hi, Candie. I got your book and I love it and the projects that are in there. I’ve never done metalworking before but I’ve been reading your book cover to cover to prepare for such a class I am hoping to get into this summer. I just love the metal and bead combination.
