I received this wonderful thank you for my participation in this contest all though I did not win! I thought I would share with your a few photos of the bracelet that I entered and maybe inspire some of you to enter this contest yourselves next year with me!
A big Thank You to all who entered the 2014 Bead Star contest.
The winning entries will be published in the October/November issue of Beadwork magazine and will also be displayed at Bead Fest Philadelphia from August 22–24.
We will not be releasing an official declaration of the winners before the big reveal at Bead Fest Philadelphia so we ask that you keep all information regarding the official results of this competition a secret until after that date.
You are all a bead star to us, for if it wasn’t for your enthusiastic participation in this contest, it wouldn’t have been such a success. We do hope that you will enter your work in next year’s Bead Star contest.
The Bead Star Staff
I entered this Faux Raku bracelet in the "Emerging Artist" category and while I did not win it sure was exciting to try. I learned a few things along the way that I will use next year when I return to try again.
Check back after August 24th, 2014 for a complete list of winners. As requested in the email above from The Bead Star Staff I cannot reveal their names until after the official announcement!
