Note: I snatched this snippet from the ISGB website for everyone.  The competition is a great one and includes all kind of beaded pieces - lampwork and otherwise.  Check the Bead and Button site for all of the "Dream" competition categories.  There is truly something for everyone.  I have featured many pieces on this blog from my visits to the Bead and Button Show each year.  You can go back into previous postings to check them out. They're truly fabulous.
