Do you dream in beads?

BeadDreams is a annual competition hosted by Bead&Button Magazine. The annual competition is open to professional and amateur artists from around the globe. The pieces are juried into a special exhibit at the Bead&Button Show every June.

The exhibit is just outside the main sales floor and the artistry and craftsmanship simply stunning.

This year Beaducation sponsored the prizes for the new "Wirework" category. The winners for 2010 are pictured below.

 1st Place, $400 gift certificate – Flight of Fancy

  2nd Place, $300 gift certificate – Chainmaille Jacket
Designed by Vanessa Walilko

3rd Place, $200 gift certificate – Starry Night in Monet’s Garden

We loved the pieces so much that we wanted to tell you more about the artists and their work. Look for upcoming blog posts on the individual artists with their insight and advice on their craft as well as more detailed photos of their work.

Congratulations, ladies! You did beautiful work.
