Cindy's Favorite ABS Fan and Linky Love

Every so often, I take a look at our new fans. What would the Art Bead Scene be without her readers?  I click on the fans at the left of the blog and meet new jewelry designers, beadmakers and all round beadaholics. Today, I thought I'd post one of the new jewelry designers I've met by clicking on the ABS fans.  Meet jewelry designer Serena Trent whose blog is entitled All Things made Jewelry.

I love the quote she's posted at the top of her blog from George Bernard Shaw, "Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself."


Serena's work was featured in the November 2010 issue of Bead Trends.  Seems like we'll be seeing more of Serena and her jewelry designs.

Thanks for joining our fans, Serena!
