Bead Design Challenge
Kabela Design will be presenting a bead challenge! They will pass out Kabela pieces, which will include a focal bead or ornament, chain and findings. Members should bring their own tools and any beads, fibers, seed beads etc. they would like to use to create a piece. Participants will be given 30-45 minutes to create a project. Finished work will be judged in two categories: Best Beaded Piece and Most Unique Piece. Winners will receive a $25.00 gift certificate. Kabela will also be selling their line of findings and beads at the meeting, with a 20% one-time discount to Bead Society members.
Suggested tools for the design challenge:
- One Pair of round-nosed pliers
- One Pair of flat-nosed pliers
- Favorite glue if necessary
- Additional beads, fibers or materials that you enjoy working with
- If you have a kit that you bring to work at the Bead-Ins you should be in good shape.
Remember that you will only be given 30-45 minutes to work on your creation, so if you wish to assemble anything in advance, feel free to bring it with you it to incorporate with supplies given.
