Hello! It’s been a while since we had a Monday Muse – I moved last month but the beads are getting put back into order and I’m ready to start creating again. My muse this Monday is chopping a the bit to start on the Art Bead Scene’s Monthly Challenge. I love the inspiration, the design and colors. So I stopped by my fellow Art Bead Scene contributor’s shops to see what they had that matched this month’s theme.
Tesori Trovati – pretty sure I have one of these in my bead stash, I must dig it up!
Ceramic rounds from Firefly Design Studio, I love using these in my designs.
Enamel leaves from Gardanne Beads, I just bought some of these in teal blue at Bead & Button.
See, I told you this challenge spoke to my muse! I created a whole set to match this month’s inspiration. Humblebeads on Etsy.
I love Mary Harding’s clasps and spotted this one in her Etsy shop. It reminds me of the branches in the poster.
Love the flowers from Creative Impressions in Clay. Tari specializes in buttons, but can make most of her designs into pendants.
Swoondimples also captures the poetic in her beads, and this one matches the dreamy quality of the inspiration piece.
