Bead Scoop - Contests & Challenges

This is a quick post with some news you might like to know, if you haven't already heard.

First, voting for Bead Star is now open! You can vote for your favorite in each category. The winners will be in the new Bead Star magazine. Yes, those are my entries in the photo, I'm shameless.

My work can be found in the Hearts category, #6 and Pearls #3. Melissa Lee, our guest editor is also in the Pearls category, she is #17.

Other art bead scene friends that have pieces entered are Andrew Thornton, Jennifer Stumpf and Gaea. So many choices! But hurry, voting ends June 18th.

And speaking of last minute, today is last day to enter the Beading Daily Shopping Spree. Pop over and do that right now. I'll wait...

Okay, now that you are back, here are two more. These ones take a little more creativity.
Submit your book inspired bead projects to Beadworks' Beaded Book Exhibition. You can read the guidelines here.

And the month is half-way over, but still plenty of time to enter the ABS Monthly Challenge. One lucky entry will be chosen to win a signed copy of Lisa Kan's book and some of the pearls that she carries in her online shop!

Hi Heather,
Thanks so much for mentioning the Bead Star Challenge. I am #9 in the Under $25 category. This is a first for me so I can't hold it in.
There are many wonderful entries. Good luck to all of us.
