Bead Challenge

Our 5th Annual Bead Challenge in 2016 was a fun success. 10 artists participated in the Bead Challenge. Each artist had a kit with common elements in them. Their challenge was to use at least one of each of these elements to make an object. They could add as many and as much of other materials as they chose. The result are 10 very different pieces of art. Pictures of the 2016 are in the top row of pictures.  Entries from 2015 are on the bottom row.  Enjoy!
