·Handmade gifts don’t suck

 

Let’s just start with that. If you make something with your hands and put your heart & soul into it, it’s not going to suck even if it doesn’t turn out as well as you hoped. Handmade is beautiful.

But…

Just because something is handmade does not mean it automatically makes a great gift. I am going to go out on a limb here and say your Dad probably doesn’t want a yarn wrapped tin can pencil holder for his desk. Unless you are like seven, and then he would for sure love it. If you are older than 18, you need to up your game.

So, I wrote a book to help you out. You’re welcome!

Red Scorpio creates bold unique statement jewelry. 100% Handmade by richelle shadoan. Beaded bracelets and necklaces make perfect gifts for the woman in your life who has everything. How to be awesome. Step out of your comfort zone. Live an artful life. Dare to be awesome.

Actual crafts you will learn about in this book!

 

The gifts in this book are easy enough that they can be made well by people with even limited crafting experience, they are quite nice to look at, & they are useable.

I will teach you some impressive skills such as glass cutting, soldering and image transfer, and show you how to use them to create awesome gifts.

Bonus: there are several crafts in here you can make for the fellas in your life, and they are notoriously hard to craft for. Believe me. I make jewelry as my regular job. Not super guy-friendly.

To celebrate the release, I’m having a super cool giveaway.

Not only can you win copies of the book, you can also score some of the awesome samples I created while writing the tutorials. Rad!
