I entered the Art Glass and Bead Show bead challenge this spring for the first time. The idea is: someone creates a challenge bead or bead series, everyone who enters buys a challenge bead and creates something using that bead.

The challenge beads were made by Debbie Austin, using old advertising tins. There were no two alike, and they were chosen at random. I got the one from a Hershey’s Syrup tin. I decided to go with a chocolate theme, and hearts, calling it “For the Love of Chocolate.”
