Shameless Self-Promotion: Bead Dreams
The Bead Dreams publication, displaying the winners and finalists of the 2009 competition, is now available. For the first time this year (I believe) it is only available on-line through the Bead & Button website, here. Needless to say, I already have my copy, and it is completely beautiful (not that I'm impartial, of course). Also, if you click on the link above, you will see a preview video, which has, as it's screencap:
(this is not the actual video, it's just a JPEG of the screenshot) ta-da! - my "Natural History" belt buckle. Needless to say, I'm pleased as punch.
Seriously, though, the photography for the e-booklet is quite stunning. As I mentioned before, apart from metal clay, my favorite category this year was beaded objects (I particularly liked the sense of humor in many of these pieces) - but all of the works are really quite inspiring to view.
As always, thanks for visiting.
