You know, I had mostly forgotten about it, but I'm pretty sure my copy of Bead Simple: 150 Designs for Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelets, Embellishments, and More got wet in the hurricane. (I was just discussing with another ex-Galvestonian at Christmas how hard it is to be sure what become of specific items.) Now that I looked at it again tonight, it makes me want to go buy another copy.
I haven't watched Beads Baubles & Jewels lately, because I'm pretty sure I've seen just about every episode of the last five seasons, many of them several times - but looking at Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet: Making Designer Metal Jewelry (Lark Jewelry Book) makes me remember how much I always enjoyed Mary Hettmansperger's segments. It looks like a good book. And I think Margot Potter's Beyond The Bead: Making Jewelry With Unexpected Finds needs to go on my "to buy" list, too.
