 Look at the fun handcrafted green colored components that we have to show you this week!
 
 
Thank you to the commenters who left links so we could find these treasures to show off!
 
 show me more green!
 
For August, we are looking for handmade jewelry components in summery green colors!
Show me beads, charms, pendants, and supplies that make you think of leafy, lime greens and glistening peridot!  Post your links in the comments here and I will select some of your items you leave on this post to highlight in another Show Me Sunday post.

Here is what some of our beady friends have to show off this week:
 
  A Bead A Day
Do you ever withhold particular beads or findings from yourself for some unknown reason? Lisa was just gifted with black findings and wonders why she never allowed herself to have them!
 
About.com Jewelry Making
New for August, another interesting designer interview, this time with Kathy Pines of World Wise Jewelry. 
 
Art Bead Scene
Take a tour of the many blogs and jewelry creations that were inspired by our Picasso challenge last month! 
 
Beading Arts
Cyndi has gathered up all her favorite resources and tutorials on working with metal clay. Do you have any more to add? 
 
Beads & Books
Michelle shares some tips for designing jewelry with bright colors. 
 
Snap out of it, Jean! There's beading to be done!
Jean is VERY excited that the 2nd reveal of Lori Anderson's 6th Bead Soup Blog Party begins on Saturday, Aug. 11, this week! Check her blog for the deets! <--cool word for details!  
 
The Writing and Art of Andrew Thornton
Exciting news! Andrew announces a Weekend Intensive with Gail Crosman Moore in Ligonier, Pennsylvania! Four amazing classes with this supremely talented artist and jewelry-maker!
