Amuse the Muse - birds and butterflies - with Rebecca of Songbead

Hello lovely ABS-ers! I don't know about you, but Spring has truly sprung these past few days here in Edinburgh. Yesterday I had a perfectly gorgeous spring-y day - a walk on Portobello beach with a friend's doggie, splashing about in the waves and drinking lots of cups of tea. All that was missing was beads and it would have been perfect! 

So here are a few perfectly gorgeous Spring-y beads for you this week - more beautiful birds and butterflies to inspire you:

ABS's newest team member - Anne of Gardanne Beads!

I've got a whole new bounty of beads in at The Curious Bead Shop, including this beautiful glass peacock button. 

Have a great week everyone! I hope you're able to get out and enjoy yourselves - and have some fun with art beads too!

Rebecca is a Scottish jewellery designer; currently living in the capital city of Edinburgh. 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

Some beautiful beads there. I am most inspired by nature, so I love most all of these, especially that lampwork bird in the top photo!
