Show Me Sunday

This week I discovered the many great tutorials that one of my favorite bead stores, Ornamentea, has to offer on their website!  Some of them, like the Brushstrokes Macrame Bracelet shown above, are very compatible with art beads, as you can see by the awesome use of Elaine Ray’s ceramic pieces in the examples.  Check out all of Ornamentea’s tutorials here.
Thank you to the commenters who left links so we could find these treasures to show off!
Show Me Bead School! 
For September, to celebrate the start of back-to-school, we are looking for classes,
tutorials, and workshops that focus on bringing your art beads and
beading to a new level of art. Post your links in the
comments here and I will select some of your ideas you leave on this
post to highlight in another Show Me
Sunday post.
Here is what some of our beady friends have to show off this week:
