Lynda Moseley of Diva Designs is donating a set of beautiful polymer clay beads. These beads are created using copper clay that is Lynda's custom, signature blend. It is a deep, rich, antique copper. Every color batch is slightly different, so they are unique to the batch and cannot be duplicated exactly. The glossy finish was achieved through sanding with several grits of wet-dry sandpaper and buffing with a Dremel.

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

"Blue Feather" sculpture by Alexander Calder has many different elements that can be used for inspiration, fantastic shapes, bold use of black, bright orange, bright blue, or my favorite-kinetic art.
We can't wait to see where your creativity takes you with the interesting sculpture for this months challenge!
