March is often associated with idioms about lions and lambs… but here at AJE it was the month of the Hare. We had discussed this “theme” idea for a good while before deciding to move ahead. And we, as a team, felt there were myriad reasons to give it a try… We wanted the bead makers, the component people to have an opportunity to be involved in a monthly challenge. I mean art beads – am I right? And we wanted to encourage dialogue on inspiration, and shared inspiration. We wanted to demonstrate individual styles of expression, and the diversity of artist offerings within limited parameters. But enough philosophy – on with the reveal!
This month we have many participants – team members, 2 winners and a great list of artists and designers that hopped to the challenge. Take a look. Enjoy.
