"Coffee Lover's Cup" necklace tutorial on The Art Bead Scene Blog and Shop Update!

Hello friends!

I am excited to announce that I was asked to create a tutorial on my "Coffee Lover's Cup" necklace for the Art Bead Scene Blog!  The original design was based on the coffee beads, coffee themed glass headpins I made for my mother's birthday present this year! So since I had the tutorial completed I thought it might be a smart idea to get crackin' on those beads and headpins! 
Here is a sneak peek at the necklace design! Pretty SCHWEET huh?! I LOVE it, of course since I am a coffee addict :D

For the "Coffee Lover's Cup" necklace tutorial you will need all 3 sets of coffee beads/headpins below.

"Coffee Lover's Cup" bead set. A coffee cup heart focal, 2 coffee bean beads, a coffee mug, and a "triangle" designed round bead with coffee bean dot accents in that YUMMY earth tone palette.

"Sedona Sunset Pod"- lampwork glass headpin set. Super GORGEOUS dusty rose with rainbowy raku, along with mint green leaves with blushes of aqua.

"Rainbow Streamers II"- Who doesn't want to party with these bright colors and swirly ribbon designs?

"Earthy Blend" spotty spacers. Another favorite for designs!

"Coffee Bean Blend" glass headpins featuring a coffee bean, paddle with heart, paddle with coffee bean, and 2 spotty droplets.

I have a follow-up blog in the works with a design made using my new Bullseye glass from my birthday present and a little blip on making a "Color Profile" for your lampwork bead designs.

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer. I was excited to be wearing a hoodie in August  here in the Northwest! Ok so it was at night time, but it's still a hoodie in August! :D

See you soon!
