Perfect Pairings :: Barbara Hanselman + BH ClaySmith

This necklace looks like it crawled right out of the sea! The organic shapes of the shards are meant to mimic sea urchins and are spaced with turquoise chips for a great pop of oceanic color. I could picture this on some Mesopotamian woman as easily as I could on the neck of a modern-day New York socialite! The designer, Barbara Hanselman, is also the bead artist! And she also happens to be our featured bead artist from the June challenge for the art bead category and makes the most deliciously rustic relics. Definitely, check it out!

Featured Designer + Bead Artist:: BH Claysmith

Just a friendly reminder… We have a
slightly new format for uploading your pictures for consideration for
the Perfect Pairings each Wednesday, as well as the Monthly Challenge
Recap post. 

We are now using Pinterest! You can find more details in this post about the exciting new changes, including a board devoted to art beads inspired by the monthly challenge!
(Ooh! Look! More pretty beads to lust after!)

Pretty please make sure that
you post a link in your Pinterest description so that I have someplace
to attribute the picture to! And don’t forget to tell us about those art


Deadline to get your pictures posted to the Pinterest boards for the creation of the
Monthly Challenge Recap post is July 29th

TIP: If you upload your photo
to pin it rather than pin it from your blog or shop, edit the pin (the
little pencil button) and add your link as the source.
Save your edits.
This will allow us to click directly on your photo and go to your blog
or shop to read more about your entry.
