Please read this before submitting your lenses!
Lenses about beading, bead making and wearable arts are welcome. The main focus of Beads and Jewels is sharing ideas and inspriation for beadwork and jewelry making.
We want to get the word out that original, handmade, beaded crafts are the best you can find!
We also have a place for artists who sell their work, jewelry and beading reviews, and people who just plain love baubles and shinies.
Our purpose is to teach, inspire and share. To ensure that our group contains lenses of the highest quality, we do have some standards that we wish to maintain.
Here are some of the things we look for:
1) Lenses should contain at least two original written content modules that are related to our topic. (Not including the introduction, product reviews or Wikipedia modules.)
2) Lensmasters should have a detailed profile with Contact Me enabled. Remember that no one can view your email address directly.
