Art Bead Scene Challenge
I have been reading the Art Bead Scene blog for a few years and it’s a wonderful blog dedicated to art beads with features on art bead artists, inside the studio highlights, jewelry designs and jewelry tutorials. Art Bead Scene hosts a fabulous monthly design challenge that incorporates art beads and is based on a work of art. I usually read the challenge, view the entries, enjoy and move on. But in July, I decided to participate and submit a design to their Flickr pool for the monthly challenge and low and behold I ended up being chosen as a random winner! How lucky is that? I think it was a nudge from the universe for me to get involved and challenge myself artistically more often.
This was the July challenge:
This is the design I submitted to the Flickr pool:
Just for participating in the challenge, I was chosen as a random lucky winner and won these beautiful beads from Gaea Handmade!
