Amuse the Muse - Rose Quartz and Serenity ABS Team Edition - with Rebecca of Songbead

Hello all! It's Monday, it's time for Amuse the Muse and the BeadBlogger Links - let's get this week started! This post is going to be all about what beads and/or jewellery you can get in this theme from the Art Bead Scene Team. We have a whole lot of art bead loveliness to share with you today!

Claire has a collage of beautiful pieces featuring Rose Quartz paired with some gorgeous neutrals and vintage components. I would happily pop any of these in my ears today; how about you?

Erin has '...a small selection of limited edition pendants with hand carved forget-me-nots on them that would be perfect for this month's inspiration. I am only offering the few I have and ALL $ will go to the Alzheimer's organization for the sale of them."

Michelle has these super-fun jellyfish. Don't you just love them?!

How absolutely adorable are Heather's gorgeous wee owls? Each one is an individual wee personality - I love them!

Mary has several listings which fit Pantone's new colours, including this gorgeous bracelet bar. 

Julie's been working on some of her infamous Weenies, and seriously - how perfect are these? She's hoping to get them listed in her shop soon - for updates, check out her Facebook page.

Tari shared these fab drawer pulls, which are made from one of her original buttons - how cute are they?! 

Heather has these beautiful Dogwood pendants in the perfect colours.

And last, but hopefully not least, some handwoven beads from me. I've made some 'double dip' beads with both colours, and some pairs in both Serenity and Rose Quartz for if you want to work with these colours individually.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed this little tour of what the ABS team have to offer in Pantone's Colours of the Year 2016 - why not dip a toe and try these colours, and see how you can incorporate them into your own work? And then don't forget to send us your pictures - we'd love to see!

And now for the BeadBlogger Links. Have a great week everyone!

Great examples of Pantone's Colors of the Year. I like that you have some bright examples, not just the soft (baby color) versions. I love the "wee owls" too!
