Preview of Coming Attractions

Feb. 2 is the Big Reveal of the Lucite and Bead Blog Hop

Stop by Lisa Lodges blog next Saturday Feb. 2 for the Lucite and Bead Blog Hop.  The participants got an art bead, lucite beads, and other beads to use.  The photo above shows what I was sent.  You see there is a gorgeous floral art bead and some lucite flowers and leaves in the mix.  I won't tell you what I made, but I will say that it isn't earrings.  I planned on working my design around the art bead and since I only had 1 and I am not a fan of asymetrical designs I ruled out earrings.

Next Saturday is also the 2nd reveal of the Earring Challenge sponsored by the The Art Jewelry Elements team. is bringing a new creative opportunity for 2013. AJE is sponsoring a year-long Earring Challenge in 2013.  The challenge will be broken up into quarterly sections, so interested folks can try it out for 13 weeks at a time.  They are challenging artisans to create one pair of earrings a week.  All earring designs have to feature at least one artisan component, such as a handmade charm or bead.  The artisan components may be made by the artisan or by another artist.  Next week I will reveal a pair of earrings using a component from D7 Studio and a pair from Suburban Girl Studio.
