Hello hello - it's me! Life is rather challenging, shall we say, for me and my little family at the moment, and so I haven't been able to post here on Art Bead Scene as much as I would like to - I'm really lucky to have the support of the team taking over when needs be! However, things are calmer these past few days so I'm here again! Thank you to Tari for taking over for me last week. You are a star! (You should see my own blog.....one word - TUMBLEWEED.....!)
Flowers are the theme for April, which is happily one of my favourite images to work with in jewellery. Who are your favourite flower bead artists? Do you make flower beads? Leave your links in the comments!
Here's some of the flowery goodness that the Art Bead Scene team have created to inspire you and your designs. Tari shared a bunch of her beautiful buttons last week, but let's see what everyone else has for you...
Seriously sweet roses from Erin...
Art-inspired floral loveliness from Heather (some of Lottie's favourites too, thank you for the shout out!)...
Handwoven daisies from me...
Impressed copper wildflowers from Ema...
Bold, graphic blooms from Claire...
And a happy, happy scarlet daisy from Mary - don't you just adore this colour combination?
Which ones are your favourites?
And now for the BeadBlogger Links. Have a great week!
Winter is coming... actually, it's spring, but the new season of Game of Thrones starts soon. See what Andrew created for a jewelry challenge that pays homage to the books and television series.
Prims are all the rage these days and Connie is fascinated with them. She's added a new free pattern that is inspired by all the primitive designers she admires. It will have you "crowing" in anticipation of a quick finish.
If you'd like to try bead weaving, here's a great way to learn. Look at the ring Eileen made in her first attempt.
Rebecca is a Scottish jewellery designer; currently living in Edinburgh, capital of her native land. You can read more about her and her work at her blog, songbeads.blogspot.com and see more of her jewellery at songbead.etsy.com. She also has a supplies shop at thecuriousbeadshop.etsy.com.
Thanks for this post, Rebecca. Glad the last few days have been easier.
Wow so much inspiration... Do I have to pick 1 favorite? I'm a kind of, "I love it all" girl!!!
So nice to 'hear' your voice, Miss Rebecca! So sweet to be featured. Thank you! You are my 'something good' today, my friend. Enjoy the day. Erin
What a wonderful eyeful of color and beauty for this very Spring like morning in Northern New York!! Thanks so much for including my Daisy Pendant.
Floral beads always get my attention. I don't often make pieces without them! I found some really interesting floral beads - lavender blossoms (lavender is a favourtite of mine) here:
Gorgeous encased lampwork beads (I would LOVE to order some of these!) here:
And loads of stunning lampwork blooms here (another one on my list to order from eventually!):
I must admit to loving them all. The scarlet Daisy from Mary is AWESOME! 📣
I love Erin's roses. Floral beads are always welcome especially at this time of year. :)
