Desperately Quiet in the ABS Neighborhood...'s desperately quiet in the ABS Neighborhood today. Have the neighbors packed up and left for Bead and Button? Or are they soundly sleeping in their beds? Or are they locked in their studios making art beads? Let's stroll around the neighborhood and see what art beads we can see and then it's off to visit the Bead Bloggers!

First, there's Tari of Clay Buttons.....

Then Melanie of Earthenwood....

The suspected Desperate Editor herself, Cindy Gimbrone....

And then Art Bead Scene founder, Heather of Humblebeads... Jewelry Making
Chandelier earrings are still super popular, but sometimes they are just a little too much for every day wear, unless you scale them down like Tammy did in this chandelier earring project.
