A Plethora of Blog Hops

The best thing about the Art Bead Scene is the community that visits us each day.  I love seeing what you guys are up to and watching you grow as artists.  Today I'm turning the attention back to you, because your creativity astounds me.

If you are in need of some inspiration, grab a cup of tea and enjoy the eye candy.

First up is Diane Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studios fun earring swap.  I love that using art beads was one of the requirements of the swap!  Who doesn't love new earrings?

Check out the swap at Diane's blog: Vintage Blues Studio.

Michelle Mach hosted a Very Vintage Blog Hop featuring kits she put together.  The kits featured Vintaj components and lucite beads.

You can view all the participants links on Michelle's blog Beads & Books.

Mr. Andrew Thornton has been hosting a great monthly Reader's Challenge featuring kits that he puts together each month.  I was honored to have my little charms as part of his September Challenge.  Andrew's challenge also features art beads from Heather Wynn, C-Koop and one of his own creations.

You can see all the creative ways his readers put together their kits by following the links on his blog.

And finally Lorelei Eurto and Shannon Chomanczuk paired up with Lima Beads for a fun challenge to try to make as many pieces of jewelry as possible from the kits offered from Lima Beads.

You can view all the entries on Lorelei's blog.
