The Bead Star Bead Slam!
Don’t miss the Bead Star Bead Slam event on Friday from 1:00 p.m. – 5 p.m. All Bead Fest attendees and students are invited to battle it out by creating a beading project on site. Fire Mountain Gems will give each contestant a spool of beading wire, BeadingDaily.com will offer each contestant a beading box and Beadalon will be providing the tools. The contestants will provide the beads they purchased at the show and the inspiration. A panel of expert judges will select the 20 finalists and then on Saturday all of the show attendees will be invited to vote for their favorite project. The winners will be announced on Sunday at noon.
Great prizes! Plus the Grand Prize Winner will even get their project published in the inaugural issue of Bead Star magazine.
This is going to be a very cool and exciting event!
