ABS Challenge Favs

Art Bead Scene readers rock!  When I started the ABS I had no idea what a talented group of artists would join in our monthly creative challenge.  I'm inspired each month by the entries and enthusiasm of our readers!

You are truly an inspiration Heather! The talent pool that comes to the ABS challenge month after month is truly remarkable. I love to come here and be inspired not just by your challenge, but by all the wonderful designers out there! Thanks for continuing to inspire us all. Enjoy the day! Erin

what i love so much about the abs challenge is getting to see each person's interpretation... and how, after time, you can figure out who did what... all very distinctive and yet related ... very cool - thank you for including my piece in your collage...

Thanks Heather to you and the ABS team for setting such wonderful challenges - the results are always interesting and the interpretations varied. This month was the first time I entered, encouraged by Erin Siegel with her leaf pendant. I will be sure to participate again - a lot of fun! Thanks for including my piece in your montage. Vicki

A talented bunch of artists! I don't know how anyone could pick a winner out of all these beauties!

Every month I tell myself that I will make something for the challenge, but time has a way of moving so quickly and getting away from me. I've only been able to enter a couple times.....hoping this year will be different.

You do a great job at the helm of the ABS.

I'm honored to be included in this group! This was my first time participating and I was surprised at how well that creative prompt worked for me.

By the way, did you see the Humblebeads I used in the Beading Daily post recently? I can't wait to get that piece back so I can wear it!
