Bead Addicts, Jewelry Making Machines & Connoisseurs of Handmade

"Vase with Flowers in a Window" by Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder, 1620

is a vibrant inspiration for May's Art Bead Scene Monthly Challenge.

As most of us are prepping up for the summer landscape by sprucing up window sills, boosting curb appeal and just enjoying the sheer act of gardening, some amongst us may also enjoy taking it to a deeper level - of appreciating botany and entomolgy.

So HERE are some HANDMADE ART BEADS and COMPONENTS to inspire your designs for May !
