Snaptastic Giveaway!


With the new year we have added a new contributor to the Art Bead Scene. I'd like you all to welcome my good friend Mrs. Kerry Bogert!  (Insert wild round of applause!)


Kerry Bogert, that names sounds fimilar...



And the soon to be released Wire Coiling Secrets DVD.

You've also seen Kerry in a handful of other books and magazines contributing projects with her unique wire and lampwork style. Be sure to check out her inspiring column on color in each issue of Step by Step Wire.


Kerry also has a busy year of teaching planned for 2013 starting off with teaching on the next Bead Cruise in March.

You can also join Kerry for a few amazing classes at Bead & Button this year.

Along with being a talented beadmaker and designer, Kerry is also an amazing photographer. Just visit her blog for proof! 

Kerry taught her Snaptastic class on the cruise last year and it is back again by popular demand.  Kerry also offers this class as an ecourse and an ebook. 

The ecourse is filled with bonus content and a 5 week self-paced class for you to follow along.  I had a chance to look over the ecourse and I picked up a handful of tips without even delving in just yet! 

We are giving away a CD of Kerry's ebook, Snaptastic!  

Just leave a comment below to enter to win. 

Pin, tweet or Facebook this giveway for a second chance to win.  (Leave a second comment letting us know you did!)

Make sure we can contact if you in case you win. 

We'll pick a winner on Monday, January 21st.
