May Component of the Month Challenge and Giveaway!

Over at Art Jewelry Elements you may have noticed we have a monthly challenge and giveaway.  For the month of May, I am providing the components!  Please hop on over to Art Jewelry Elements and enter a comment if you’d like to win some beads and play along!

Here’s what you’re commenting for this month – a choice of a bead trio or cabochon!

Never fear – if you don’t get chosen and would still like to play along, I have cabs and bead trios available in my SueBeads etsy store

New Beads

Sorry I’ve been so absent lately – I have been working a lot with my boyfriend and there is just not enough time, as I’m sure you all know, to have a somewhat-full-time job, a business, two kids, college looming, graduation looming, sports, etc. and try to keep up with the social media as well!  I feel bad because I do read all of your comments – I just literally have no time right now to do everything.  I hope to figure out some sort of schedule for myself to accomplish my goals more readily!  Now, for the bead porn!

I’ve been making a few new styles of beads lately, actually I’ve been somewhat obsessed with these styles – the flowers, the ruffles, the ruffled discs, and now the embossed beads!  You can see a lot of these beads in my SueBeads etsy store!  I hope you take a look!  While I need to work to make some money for all of the above, I sure do love making beads and hope to be able to continue doing so!
