This Bead Challenge is a competition where entrants are all given an identical set of beads. All of these beads must be used to create a beaded piece, but more can be added if required. The finished piece must fit within a 30cm square tile. 


 2016 Bead Challenge Beads

The exotic “Midnight Blues” mix for the 2016 Bead Challenge contained an exciting collection of Czech one and two holed shaped beads, dyed howlite rounds and an exquisite Swarovski rivoli. A personal choice of complementary beads or findings could be added to the basic set for an inspired piece.



Congratulations to all the 2016 winners
An extremely high standard and wonderful variety of creative beadwork from all the entrants!
