Art Beads Scene is a blog for lovers, makers and collectors of art beads---be they glass, clay, ceramic, bisque.
Some love to make art beads! My fave medium is polymer clay. Heather Powers, the force behind Art Beads Scene Blog, is the owner of Humblebeads. Humblebeads is a much loved resource for polymer clay art beads and focals.
Check out Humblebeads here!
And, if you'd like to see more, here's a page of links to many an art bead!
I was so pleased to be asked by Heather to be one of the sponsors for her June challenge. I hope you will take a moment to have a look and consider being part of Heather's group. All challenge entries must contain ART BEADS. Take a moment to look at the criteria....and then, go be creative!
Polymer clay is an inexpensive and forgiving medium. It can be cut, stamped, inked, painted, drilled.
Our new Spectrum Noir alcohol inks are FAB over polymer clay:
SWELLEGANT metal coatings, dye oxides and patinas are also fab!
http://www.bsueboutiques.com/mmp_swellegant_products.shtml Christi Friesen, the polymer clay queen, developed this line!
Ranger patina-inks with the Vintaj branding are also a fine choice:

And of course, we carry polymer clay as well as tools and glazes to go with it:

Here's my wonky bracelet made out of copper wire.....and art beads that I made!
We've got copper wire at B'sue Boutiques.
