Amuse Your Muse - April Showers - with Rebecca of Songbead

It's April Abs-ers! And my birthday month, incidentally. I'm currently marching through my 30s, and will be turning 33 this month.....still a week or so to go however. Can you guess what I am hoping the birthday fairies might bring me....? Not a hard one to guess, I'm sure. 

This month our theme for Amuse Your Muse is 'April Showers'....watery, weather beads. I'd love to see your shares! Share your beady finds, your own handmade beads, and your jewellery with watery beads within. We'd love to see. 

First up, these lovely lampwork glass beads. To me, they look like landscape beads - looking out of a window in the rain on sea, sand and sky. 

Next, I found these super-sweet laser-cut wooden dark cloud charms. Can't you just see some of these with cascading clear glass drops? 

And, ok - these are more summer seas and sands, but I couldn't resist their wave-like swirls, rock pools and vibrant coral dots! I love the side on view of the sea within them. 

And now for the BeadBlogger Links - have a great week everyone!

Rebecca is a Scottish jewellery designer, currently living in Belfast, Northern Ireland. You can read more about her and her work at her blog, and see more of her jewellery at She also has a supplies shop at
