Bead blog recap week 40

This week I've blogged about everything from beading contests to apple seed beads and paper quilled jewellery at my other blog, Manekis Pärlblogg. Hope you like it.

Artbead design contest
American bead shop Artbead has announced a new beading contest called What Inspires You?

Beaded cubes
How to make beaded cubes, from simple cross-weaved cubes to larger peyote beaded beads.

Ideas for using aluminum roses
A collecting of links for projects using aluminum/metal roses: link, stitch, glue or string them. And why not add some extra foliage?

"Green" resin from Ornamentea
American bead shop Ornamentea has announced a new plant-based resin called ecopoxycraftresin. It's a safter resin that doesn't require exact measuring when mixing.

New blog gadget for colour inspiration
I've added a new gadget to the blog, which generates randow colour schemes. Hopefully it'll be inspirational and useful, but for now I'm just doing a test run. Let me know what you think of it.

Paper quilled jewellery
You can make lovely filigree pendants for your jewellery using paper quilling.

Coffee bean beads
How to make beads from your coffee beans.

Making beads from seeds

Inspired by the season, here's links to beadmaking projects using apple seeds, pumpkins seeds, beans and more. Also includes an aumtumn classic: strining rowanberries.
