After months of following the Art Bead Love chain from blog to blog, I just received word from the previous holder of the chain, Lori Bowring Michaud of Artfully Ornamental, that the Art Bead Love Tour chain is headed my way. I am so excited and can't wait to see all of that beady goodness!
The Art Bead Love Tour is an ongoing project to spread the love of handmade to new and exciting places. It’s a way to reach people who may have never stumbled upon our blog on their own, and give them a chance to share the love of handmade. We chose to use a chain to link beads as a symbol of how this project links us all together~ in our unity to stand behind handmade.Bead artists have filled one and a half feet of chain with handmade beads, charms and pendants, donated by our own Love My Art Jewelry Group. There are 60 beads on this chain, worth approximately $450. It includes ceramic, glass, polymer, various metals and metal clay beads. It’s a true tribute to handmade in all its beady glory! These beads are ready to go on tour…….the Art Bead Love Tour! This tour is basically an art bead swap, which will go on and on and on.
Once I receive the Art Bead Love chain, I will have the raffle for the next person to win the chain.
So stay tuned for your chance to be a holder of the chain!
