Hi everyone,

I gathered a bunch of links to all the current beading/jewelry making contests & challenges that I know about.  I think there's a little something for everyone:  stringing, wirework, beadweaving, and mixed media.  If you know about any current contests that I forgot, just let me know and I'll add them.  This list goes through February, just to keep you busy and out of trouble during the holidays! Wink

Michelle, thanks for the list. 

I suspect some of our Significant Others might disagree that beading and staying out of trouble go hand in hand. Angel

Especially the poor dears who are always finding beads in their shoes or in the refrigerator.

Hypothetically speaking, of course. Smile

You 2 just gave me a good laugh. LOL

Aside from beading, I'm a hoarder of embroidery supplies too so imagine DH reaction... LOL

Thanks for all the links Michelle!  I have beads for Lorelei's challenge on my desk but haven't had time to work on it.

Funny you should mention beads in the fridge-we changed the dishwasher in my new house over the weekend and found beads under it, as well as under my center island when I swept.  Guess there was a beader living here before me, or they had a jewelry accident.
