September Bead of the Month – The Frog Bead reminds you that you are toad-ally awesome!
About the Bead: "My inspiration for the Frog Bead comes from nature. I made each frog slightly imperfect, but always lovable and always with an attitude. I call this my Flock of Fat, Fabulous, Funny Florida Frogs and I sincerely hope kids and people of all ages love them. A lot of love went into making them!" -- Tillie O'Kelley, Bead Artist
About the Artist: Tillie O'Kelley is the grandmother of a medically fragile child and has two different kinds of cancer herself.
