Please read this before submitting your lenses!

Our Topics:

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 Guidelines:

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.

Lenses approved for Beads and Jewels are reviewed and rated. Those lenses with specific topics or themes will also be featured in appropriate categories. To be featured, please make sure that you have a picture in the introduction module.

Don't forget to check out some group lenses and join in the Group Discussion!

If the groupmaster likes it, he or she will add it to the featured lenses lists above.
