Bead News

Here are some random pieces of Beady News to take note of this week:

Bead Star Auctions - 100% of the proceeds go to the American Heart Association.  You can purchase one of the designs featured in this year's magazine. 

Also, don't forget to enter Bead Star this year for your chance to win!

Rings & Things - The road show is once again touring the country with those beady rock stars.  I will be checking out the one in San Antonio this weekend!  Here is a list of all the dates.  Throw a bead soup party when the show rolls into your town.

Ornamentea - On the 25-26, they are hosting a trunk show with Elaine Ray and a class on Designing Without Limits with Lorelei Eurto, so if you are in that neck of the woods (Raleigh, North Carolina) be sure to check them out. 

New work from our ABS editors:

Art Bead Scene Parade
I've created a new Flickr group for beadmakers called the Art Bead Scene Parade.  You guys create such amazing work and so often, I can't keep up!  So make it easy on me by submitting quality photos of your latest art beads & handmade findings and you may end up featured here on the ABS.  Show me your best!

Thanks for the shout out to us here in Raleigh! I love the visual picture of a bead parade that is now in my head; people sized beads walking down the middle of a road with a long rope stringing them all together. I'm standing on the side of the road cheering as the marching band beads go by......

Fabulous idea! I love looking at all the challenge entries so to have ABS members posting their non challenge creations regularly will be great :)

Love that idea!! I will line up my little marchers!!
Thanks for setting it up.

Just read the rules- do you mean a limit of 5 photos a day or are 5 photos a day required?

Lots of fun stuff going on :)

Heather - it's up to 5 photos per day. You can post less than 5, I just didn't want someone to load too many at one time. :)
