New love for an old favorite...

This tutorial from last year has been reprinted over at Art Bead Scene. That blog features great projects and ideas and articles from some amazing bead makers and jewelry artists. They also have a monthly contest with a theme that is so fun to enter. Go visit the Art Bead Scene and check out the tutorial and the contest this month. The inspirational painting, by Paul Gaugin, is a riot of bright, tropical colors and motifs.

This necklace features some lovely handmade Elaine Ray ceramic beads on a double strand of frayed silk duiponi ribbon. The colors are bright and cheery. I'd like to wear this necklace with a striped navy-and-white tee, a red pencil skirt and the perfect pair of mustard yellow flats. Hmm...I might just DO that...

So, go check out the Art Bead Scene .
Ornamentea is one of the sponsors for this month's contest and I'd love for you to enter and win!
