A Tour of Favourite Blogs

There are many blogs that I check out on a regular basis. Some are listed on either side of this page, but many are not included. I thought it would be fun to do a little tour.

Today the featured blogs are Jewellery Blog Groups

I think my favourite blogs are those that have a group of like minded individuals posting their contributions. You never know what the subject will be and there tends to be something posted every weekday. Lots to read on these blogs.

Click on each image to go to their blogs

This blog focuses on earrings, with a goal of giving readers inspiration. A monthly inspiration challenge is sponsored by the group. Anyone can participate and just needs to make a pair of earrings that fit into the theme of that month’s inspiration

This blog is run by a group of self-confessed crazy bead ladies. Their blog is all about “beady tips, video clips, stories, notices about classes and sales, and sometimes totally irrelevant stuff that we think is interesting and you might too!” Although this is a company blog I find enough variety to check it out frequently

The blog is run by a group of jewellery designers who work in multiple mediums. Their mission is to operate a collaborative blog “written for jewelry designers using handmade and high quality components in their art jewelry”

Another blog run by a group of professional jewellery designers, they tell the story of their purpose best “Art Bead Scene is an interactive blog with the goal of uniting bead artists of all materials and the jewelry designers who use art beads in their work… To us, art beads are incredible, tiny works of art made by hand from the finest materials by some of the best artists in this country and around the world.”

Similar to the last 2 blogs, this one also focuses on handmade art beads. Love my Art Jewelry is run by a group of artisans located in the UK. I find you get a very different perspective from this group of artisans.

Interweave runs this blog. They are a company that offers books, magazines, tutorials, digital products, DVDs and Videos. There are 3 blogs and many forums available through this link.

Another blog run by a company, this one focuses on jewelry making tips, news and videos. Of course this company's products are focused around wire based jewellery.

Also run by a company, the editors of this blog come from many backgrounds and feature jewellery inspirations based on the Halcraft products, fashion ideas, book reviews, DIY ideas and much more.

Because these last 3 blogs do have a focus on their own products, I find I don’t check them out as often as the others. They do present some fresh alternatives though.

Another time I’ll talk about other types of blogs.
