Bead Chat Magazine & Znetshows Sea Glass 5x5 Test Group

I am one of 5 randomly chosen artists on Artisan Whimsy to be chosen for the 5x5 July Test group.  Currently published in their online magazine "Bead Chat Magazine". We worked with fabulous Beach Glass Beads presented to us by Znetshows.  Znetshows has an extensive wholesale selection of gemstones and beads and their website  is updated daily! Be sure to check back here for updates as I will post photos when I receive my "Beach Glass".  Thank you to Znetshows and Artisan Whimsy for this opportunity!

Happy Beading!
