As the Bead Turns, 7/29/07

Bringing you all the dirt and drama from the beading blog world...

Jennifer of the Naughty Secretary Club searches world wide for the bits that go into her revamped vintage jewelry. This past week she ventured to the Brimfield, Mass flea market. Read her blog and get the full report as well as a few online jewelry shopping suggestions she discovered on her trip!

Mother’s bracelets are true classics! Jean Yates was commissioned (by her husband Jim’s pal, Rob) to create a very pretty one for his wife, due in October. See what they created together by phone, and find out if the mother-to-be liked it or not!

Margot of The Impatient Blogger whines about her “stupid thumb” and shares “fabulicious” photos and trend spotting thoughts from this year’s Summer CHA Show. Yipee!

Robin Atkins has started a year-long Bead Journal Project. Here is Cyndi of Bead Arts
contribution for the month of July!

At Jewelry and Beading, Tammy suggests that you start planting your jewelry beads in July, so you can bead weave a cool beaded tree for the holidays.

Cindy Gimbrone of the Lampwork Diva blog joined her lampwork glass spirals with Melanie of Earthenwood Studio's porcelain shell charms. Both artists then teamed with Jean Yates to work on a Collaboration Exploration, where all three designed a piece of jewelry using both sets of bead elements. Click on each of their blogs to see the results!
