Presenting the winners of the annual Bead Star contest! View the award-winning designs for creative inspiration.
Bead Star magazine is the only beading publication comprised entirely of prize-winning jewelry designs selected by beaders worldwide. The contest includes nine categories: Crystals, Heart Designs, Glass, Metals, Pearls, Plastics, Seed Beads, Stones and Under $25. The editors of Stringing and Beadwork magazines narrow the entries down to 20 finalists per category. From there, the Beading Daily readers select the 45 winning designs that ultimately make it into the all-star publication.
Fire Mountain Gems and Beads is the $3,000 Grand-Prize Sponsor of the Bead Star jewelry-making contest. The grand-prize winner receives a $1,000 gift certificate from Fire Mountain Gems and Beads and an all-expense-paid trip for two to Bead Fest Santa Fe to accept the award.
