Amuse your Muse - April Showers - with Rebecca of Songbead

Afternoon all! Here we are at the end of the month and we have our last lot of April Showers beads - watery, shower-y, rain-y beads. Thank you to Liona and Claire for sharing their finds this week! Next month, we complete the rhyme with May Flowers. Share your flower bead links in the comments below. 

Liona of Blue Merlin Creations shared these beautiful 'West Coast Beach' beads - don't they make you long for some sea and sand? These are from Stephanie Beads.

Liona also shared these lovely 'spring waters' lampwork beads, from Moogin Beads. Yum! You've got to be quick off the mark to snap up any of Moogin's mini-masterpieces.

Co-editor Claire Lockwood shared these sweet ceramic fishes - aren't they fab? They are from Happy Fish Things, and very happy they are indeed.

Claire also shared these beautiful teardrop beads. What a stunning water-y glaze! These are also from Happy Fish Things.

And now for the BeadBlogger Links. Have a lovely week everyone!
