There's something magical about teeny little seed beads, isn't there? When you finish a project, the whole is so much more than simply the sum of the parts, and you feel such a sense of accomplishment.
I love to work with seed beads, and I know that for many people, the little darlings are really what define "beading". Everything else that we do with beads is wonderful, but there's something extra special about seed beads.
During this month (and into the next one if we need to), I'm going to share a round-up of information that's in our archives here on Beading Arts below, and point you to the fabulous work done by artists we already know, but I also want all of you who love seed beads to join in too. Whether you string, weave off-loom or on a loom, embroider, glue, or whatever else you can think of doing with seed beads, either wearables or non-wearables, we want to see your work. You don't have to be a pro...you just gotta tell us why you love 'em! Please send your artist statement of one to two paragraphs, and up to three images (72dpi res) of your work, along with a link to your site to cyndi @ mazeltovjewelry.com (remove the spaces). Please put Seed bead artist in the subject line.
