Link Library with Melanie

 I keep unearthing all sorts of great free projects that have been posted here on Art Bead Scene over the years.  Today, I remembered this delightfully fun and intricate owl necklace that Erin Prais Hintz created as a free project last September.

 Click here to see Erin's Woodsy Necklace from the archives.

Here are some of the things going on in the studios of some of our beady friends:
