Allegory Gallery Blog

Bead and Craft Bloggers

What a wonderful line-up of links from our Bead and Craft Bloggers group!  There's so much talent on display this week!

Awareness can be beautiful.  In this post, TappingflamingoBling shares her beach style with these autism awareness bracelets!  The cherry on top is that a portion of the sales will benefit a nonprofit that supports autism awareness.

Summer is a busy time!  Keeping up with your crafts can be tricky.  In this post, Cyndi shows how she side-stepped packing and planning for a dozen different projects and focused on one technique: the Russian Spiral rope that she learned from Carol Ohl's article in Beadwork magazine.

Tammy, the Crafty Princess extraordinaire, let's us take a look at a tiny Blythe Doll dress she made and talks about the importance of adding details, especially when working on a small scale.

Allegory Gallery has a monthly design kit challenge.  July's challenge was, "Wild Jungle".  See what Ann made with the kit!

Brenda Schweder, Jess Lincoln, Heather Powers, and Erin Prais-Hintz teamed up this year to headline the Adornments Retreat in Galena, Illinois!  In this blog, Sarajo shares what it was like to attend this amazing experience!

Each month, this book club reads a new selection.  Unlike a lot of other book clubs, after they finish reading, members are encouraged to make something inspired by what they read!  See what Andrew created with Rainbow Rowell's book, "Eleanor & Park" as inspiration!

The store is constantly evolving!  Each day new items are added to the showroom floor.  Check out what's new at this local bead store!
