Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
Congratulations, Karen Bucci! You have won a set of Mary Hardings new beads! Please send Mary an email with your information.
Welcome, welcome Art Bead Scene readers! Today for inside the studio I have a special treat to share with you. A few of the Art Bead Scene editors decided to make something for this month's challenge. Some did finished jewelry and others created beads for the challenge.
Above are some art bead that didn't make it into my challenge piece, but will definitely being getting made into something soon. It is beach season after all and living on the lakeshore my inner mermaid and I often get together at my bead table.
Pictured are beads from Marash Neal, Diane Hawkey, Firefly Designs, Gardanne Beads, Green Girl Studios, MAKU and Humblebeads.
The Art Bead Scene Editors Take the Challenge
Visit our blogs to check out the mini-blog hop that we put together:
This week you could win this ocean-lovin' starfish pendant from Humblebeads.
Just take a sec and answer these three quick questions for me:
1. Would it help to know the monthly challenge theme 2 weeks in advance so you can plan ahead more? Two weeks to plan and then have the month to work on your challenge piece?
2. Would you like to a see an art bead category open up for the monthly challenge?
3. Which format seems more appealing to share your monthly entries:
A. An Art Bead Scene Pinterest Board (you would have to have a Pinterest account and join the board.)
B. In a new Facebook Art Bead Scene group and you would upload the images to a dedicated album for each month?
C. What the heck? Don't change the Flickr entry.
