Show Me Sunday

  Did you know that popular online bead store Lima Beads not only carries a full range of beading supplies, including many art beads, but they also have many great tutorials for beading techniques?  They have links to videos and step by step lessons on their Tips and Techniques page where you can find everything from basic beading techniques to more advanced tips for using art beads and other more involved materials.
Thank you to the commenters who left links so we could find these treasures to show off!
Show Me Bead School! 
For September, to celebrate the start of back-to-school, we are looking for classes, tutorials, and workshops that focus on bringing your art beads and beading to a new level of art. Post your links in the comments here and I will select some of your ideas you leave on this post to highlight in another Show Me Sunday post. 
Here is what some of our beady friends have to show off this week:

A Bead A Day
What do you think? Can jewelry change your outlook and how you present yourself to the world? Check in with Lisa to share your opinion! Jewelry Making
Tammy says "yes" to wire hangers, especially when they become part of a pair of earrings. 

Art Bead Scene
Rebecca shares her Turning Leaves bracelet tutorial, a beautiful free project that speaks of the change of seasons 

Beading Arts
Fabric art and beads? Of course! 

Snap out of it, Jean! There's beading to be done!
Jean falls for Erin Siegel's tutorial which she designed for Ornamentea and decides to challenge herself by trying it! It is irresistibly cool!  

Melanie Brooks is the ceramic beadmaker behind Earthenwood Studio, who blogs from her Metro Detroit, Michigan home.
