Bead Theme for April: Birds & Branches

Art Bead Scene wants to introduce our first Monthly Bead Theme! This month's theme is Birds & Branches. We have scoured the Internet, our favorite resources, and our own collections for some great examples of art beads with either tree branch or bird imagery, and here are some of our favorites:

Virginia Miska

So what would you bead with these wonderful beads and pendants? We hope you will show us! Check back tomorrow for an exciting announcement related to the Bead Theme of the month!

I LOVE this blog. In fact, I bookmarked it. Even though I mostly use seed beads, I love to look at these handcrafted beads, as well. Great job:)

BTW, I adore the lovebirds=:)

I lusted after those Earthenwood birdie coordinated ones as soon as I saw them through a blog reader when she posted them on her blog!

Hi Diana, this IS a great blog, it's off to a marvy start!
