As the Bead Turns, 8/12/07

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

If you have ever struggled with taking great photographs of your beads or jewelry, you might be interested in this photography/Photoshop tutorial that glass bead artist Lori Greenberg posted here on Art Bead Scene back in April. It has helpful tips for newbies and experts alike!

At Bead Arts, you can read the story of a collaborative charm necklace that brought artists together from across the country, to raise money for breast cancer research!

In another Adventures in Jewelry Making with the BQOTU Post from April of this year, Margot gives you the skinny on getting your work into magazines. Flakey Artists need not apply.

Tammy from the Jewelry and Beading Blog offers some tips for getting started with fused glass. Take a class. Or even better, become an apprentice.

Take a peek inside Katie's jewelry box with this crafty blast from the past. It's the first in a series of posts that bring new meaning to the phrase, "you've come a long way, baby!"

Jean senses a transition from summer to autumn in the air. This pair of earrings is a quiet contemplation of two seasons, one which is departing, one which is coming up.

Who'da thought it? Scented jewelry?!?! Follow your nose on over to Candie Cooper's blog for a little "scent" for thought.
