This morning, I was thrilled to find an email stating that my largest bead painting yet, Gasoline District, has been selected as a finalist in the Bead Museum DC‘s international juried bead & jewelry design competition! Awhile back, I wasn’t sure my art qualified for Celebrating Beads, the journey of… , since it is being billed as a ‘jewelry design contest’. But, I read the fine print – the purpose of this contest is to showcase beads in a new fashion, celebrating bead artistry and the designers who turn beads into art today.’

I am honoured to be a finalist. My work was chosen from 347 entries over 14 countries and 33 states! I don’t know if my beaded Boston trolley will make it past the final round of judging and into the exhibit, though… I guess I’ll have to head to Washington, D.C. in two weeks to find out! Wish me luck!! 😮

  2. >Thanks for the comments everyone! I am excited to be a finalist, but as I said before, we won’t know if my piece will be part of the exhibit at the Bead Museum for 2 more weeks… But, it WIll be on display at the Passion for Beads Gala on Sept. 20th at the U.S. Naval Memorial Heritage Center! Hope to see you there! :DAnd, Judy, the Bead Museum organized this competition/event in hopes to raise awareness about their organization! So, even if my piece does not place, I hope you’ll still stop by to support the museum!
