British Bead Awards

On my visit to the Big Bead Show at Sandown Park I was delighted to learn that my entry to the British Bead Awards had been awarded first place in its category!  I’d worked hard on planning and making the ‘Glister’ set I entered, and I’d been thrilled when I found out the beads had reached the final round of judging.

The ‘Glister’ set is made up of a single ‘liquid lights’ focal in sapphire and clear glass, and two ‘composite’ beads each made up of seven separate spiral disc beads in sapphire glass.  All the beads were fumed with silver to give an iridescent metallic finish.
