2018 Bead Challenge

Our 2018 Challenge focused on a nickel and purple theme, with chain elements, two hole beads and hematite round beads.

Bead Challenge entrants, both members and general public, used these beads as a basis for their designs.

The pieces were judged by our International Tutor, Liisa Turunen, and by public vote.
