Bead Challenge

Our 6th Annual Bead Challenge in 2017 was part of our 30th Anniversary celebrations.  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 2017 are in the top row of pictures, from the 2016 challenge in the bottom series.  Enjoy!
