Calling all jewellery designers!

Detail of Richard Dadd's 'The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke'If you make jewellery with art beads and you've never visited Art Bead Scene then do head on over there to see what it's all about.

If, on the other hand, you do know about the Art Bead Scene blog you'll be aware of the monthly jewellery design challenges that they run.

Each month the Art Bead Scene people choose a theme or an artwork that becomes the basis for all of the monthly challenge entries. This month the inspiration is Richard Dadd's 'The Fairy Fellers' Master-Stroke' which is a highly detailed painting, part of which can be seen at the top of this post. To have a look at the entire image please visit the November Monthly Challenge post on the Art Bead Scene blog and then why not get jewellery-making and join in? I know for a fact that there are many talented jewellery designers amongst my lovely readers and I would love it if one of you were to win! All the information you need to know regarding taking part can be found here.

The prize this month includes a book, findings, charms, beading supplies and some Cupcake beads from little old me. Please click here to see more details of what the lucky winner will receive.

Now, get inspired, get your art beads and findings out and get creating!

  2. Every month I tell myself I am going to enter this. A couple of times I have discovered inspiration for the perfect bead JUST too late! Of course, if someone else made the beads first it would speed things up ... :-)
