What is the Art Bead Scene all about?

Art Bead Scene is an interactive blog with the goal of uniting bead artists of all materials and the jewelry designers who use art beads in their work.  The blog has published daily since March 2007!

To us, art beads are incredible, tiny works of art made by hand from the finest materials by some of the best artists in this country and around the world. We think art beads are the heart of excellent jewelry design, and we celebrate the artists and products that agree with us.

Some of the regular features include:

*Current events and trends in the bead world

*Interviews with bead artists and jewelry designers who use art beads in their work

*Reviews of new products, books, and stores that carry art beads.

*An exciting monthly design challenge with prizes from our sponsors

*Studio Saturday, offers a peak into our creative spaces and a chance to win a free bead

*Sundays with Cindy, a round up of the best posts from some of our favorite blogs
