ABS Monthly Challenge – June

This month’s challenge is going to be fun! The theme for June is “Let Them Eat Cake.” What does that mean? Anything related to sweets, treats, candy, Marie Antoinette, or France. Let your creativity feast on the possibilities. There is a short movie clip for some inspiration at the bottom of this post.

A delicious array of prizes for the June challenge have been donated by our contributing editors and will be posted soon.

This challenge is open to jewelry-makers, fiber artists, collage artist, etc.

***Beads by themselves DO NOT qualify. Pendants need to be shown on a chain or cord to qualify.***

What is an Art Bead? An art bead is a bead, charm, button or finding made by an independent artist. Art beads are the vision and handiwork of an individual artist. You can read more about art beads here.

*A bead that is handmade is not necessarily an art bead. Hill Tribe Silver, Kazuri ceramic beads or lampwork beads made in factories are examples of handmade beads that are not art beads.

How to enter: Submit a photo of an object you have created with art beads that fits this month’s theme to the Art Bead Scene Flickr group.
Detailed instructions can be found here.

Your entry can feature art beads created by you or someone else. Each entry has to have at least one art bead. Each unique entry that incorporates an art bead and the monthly theme will qualify for the drawing. The winner will be randomly drawn from all the qualifying entries on July 1st. Enter as many times as you’d like.

Please label your photos JuneABS.

Good luck and happy creating!

p.s. If you have a blog, post your entry and a link to the ABS challenge to spread the beady goodness!

    OOOOOO I LOVE his theme! I can have my cake and not eat it too (if it’s made of polymer, glass, silver clay, or whatnot, I’d better not hee hee).

    I didn’t get my May one done in time, although I have the beads! We’ll see if I get this one in on time . . .

    Thanks for the yummy theme!
