Hello, I haven't submitted to the monthly challenges before but plan to for June. Just wanted to check that so long as the main focal is a beautiful art bead can we use whatever we like to make up the rest of the piece (including non-art beads)...gemstones for example...?

Hi Nicki - yes, as long as you at least one art bead you can use whatever else you'd like in your design. Have fun creating!
