Not only did we change our appearance here on the Art Bead Scene, we've added some new opportunities for you to participate on the ABS.
Rose Noble, the incredible designer who created our new look! Rose was so sweet she even made new banners for our readers to share on their blogs and link back to the ABS. Click here to view them and pick your favorite to add to your blog!
Art Bead Scene Design Team Challenge
I’d like to invite you to apply to participate in a new feature on the Art Bead Scene.
We are going to host a monthly Design Team Challenge and we are looking for designers who love art beads, work quickly and blog!
What is the Design Team Challenge?
One of ABS contributors will send you a set of beads or a pendant.
You have two weeks to create a piece of jewelry and submit a photograph for our blog post.
We’ll feature you and your design in a post on the Art Bead Scene.
The final step is to write a blog post on your blog about your Design Team Challenge entry.
We'll pick 4 designers for each month's challenge.
To apply: email me your contact information and your blog link. Send them to Heather.
We are also looking for news, guest bloggers and more, be sure to visit our submissions page for more details.
Ads on the ABS
Monthly sponsors are very special to us. These are bead artists and our favorite suppliers that we feel exemplify our mission to celebrate Art Beads and inspire those who use them. In the past, sponsors have been by invitation only but I'd like to open that up to an application process now. Visit the advertising page for details on how to apply to be a featured monthly sponsor. We can not accept all who apply.
For beadmakers only, we are offering affordable banner ads. We'll accept the first 10 each month. Ads run on the 15th of each month. See the advertising page for rates and details.
