I am a member of the Etsy Bead Street Team. We are now an official street team!!!
Here is a little bit about us:
Profile: Beads are the most versatile medium for the creation of jewelry. Fun or elegant, chic or simple, they give endless possibilities for artistic expression. An artist in beads is one who, inspired by the beauty of colors and textures, creates something that is more than the sum of its parts. The humble bead, used in jewelry for thousands of years, can itself become a blank slate. etsyBEAD is therefore open to both bead artists and jewelry designers.
This team provides both jewelers and beadmakers with a forum to congregate, discuss their craft and business ideas, and share tips. Beaders make up a large section of Etsy, and this street team will help them promote both their craft and their individual shops through a diverse selection of events, including: online trunk shows, blog features, targeted advertising, and other opportunities. All Etsians who create beads or beaded jewelry are invited to join.
