Bead Challenge

Our 8th Annual Bead Challenge in 2019 had wonderful participation from our beading community. A record 17 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 17 very different pieces of art. Pictures of the 2019 are in the top row of pictures, from the 2018 challenge in the bottom series.  Enjoy!
