Our judges had a gloriously difficult time selecting just one piece from our 2015 Fire Mountain Gems and Beads® Metals Contest, but Keiko Wada's intricate and complex wire necklace took the Grand Prize Gold Metal (and our breath) away. A fabulous combination of wirework techniques--mixed with a range of wire sizes, styles, shapes and textures--kept us coming back again and again. See the award-winning pieces with direct links to view the stunning finalists up close and personal in the Gallery of Designs.
