Eye Candy from Bead and Button

This year my photos of the Bead Dream entries left something to be desired. I had a heck of a time with the glass reflections. These are what came out the best. Included is a closeup of the fish necklace because I found it an interesting use for a piece of Viking knit wire. Sherry Serafini is always one of my favorites and she had enough ribbons to prove she impressed the judges the same way. There were pieces from Russia, Norway (I think the Sea Slugs were from Norway), England, Japan, and many others. Beading (well, art in general) crosses all boundaries.

Definitely eye candy! Can you imagine how many 1,000's of hours are represented in the room full of pieces?

I can not begin to imagine the amount of hours spent on some of these. I didn't even get a decent shot of the Heidi Klumi (?) piece that won best of show. I've done bead embroidery before - it takes forever! The work was just awesome.
