Show Me Sunday - Word Beads with Rebecca of Songbead

Greeting Art Bead Sceners and a Happy Sunday to you all! Here is the last of our Show Me Sunday -  Word Bead edition. I've curated a treasury of finds for you here with lots of lovely word beady goodness for you all, to finish off June. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are, and that you are getting out and about; perhaps even creating in the sunshine! I know that's what I'll be doing later today.

Next month, I'm going to change up Show Me Sunday just a little. I'd like you to share not only handmade beads, but also items of jewellery that YOU have created using art beads that fit the theme. I will select one item of jewellery to share, along with the art beads. You can share a blog link, an etsy link, a flickr link.....whatever works for you! NB The jewellery MUST contain art beads that fit the theme.........there's your challenge for the week! (They can be your art beads or another's - they've just got to be in there!)

And what is the new theme, I hear you cry? Well, Mary gave us a brilliant suggestion which I would like to build on - food, was her idea. I'd like to expand on this and say - things that grow in the earth. Flora, rather than Fauna, if you get my meaning! So food stuffs, but also plants, wildlife.....let's push the envelope with this one. 

And I leave with the Bead Blogger Links.....have a great day!

Hi Rebecca, here are a couple of posts where I featured art beads created by other artists:

I wasn't certain about sharing posts where I featured my own art beads. I HAVE left links to this invitation wherever I spy flora-inspired creations on the blogs of others.
