January Monthly Challenge Prizes

We have prizes this month from 3 different artists! Plus an undisclosed number of randomly chosen winners! There are so many wonderful prizes we may need to "spread the love" to more who submit designs.

From our talented leader here at ABS Heather Powers of Humblebeads is donating the Winter Lentil beads and a Raven bead. Such fantastic beads to create wonderful jewelry! We always knew Heather was a "Bead Star," this year her necklace "Frail Love" won 3rd place in the stones category!

Visit Heather at her blog, Etsy Shop, and the Bead Cruise that is sailing away soon!

Mary Ann Carroll of Artisan Beads Plus has donated 2 bead packages. The earthy feel of her beads make them perfect for so many different creations. The blue beads have the feel of the ocean, something that would be nice to see right now instead of snow.

Visit Mary Ann's blog and website!

SueBeads has donated 3 sets of her lampworked beads. They white beads remind me of snow which are perfect for this months challenge. The blue beads look like bubbling water. These beads are just yummy.

Visit Sue's blog, etsy shop and etsy shop two!

Get your Art Beads, Art Buttons, Art Charms or Art Pendants out, start creating and enter this months challenge! 
 Submit your photos of your wonderful creations using one or more Art Beads.

"The Magpie" painting by Claude Monet has great earth tones contrasting with stark white of the snow and is a wonderful inspiration for this months challenge.
