Pieces from 80 bead artists from around the world will be sent to The Beadsmith (sponsor of this big event) on or before July 10. Many have finished their pieces, but I'm still working on mine.
If you would like to meet the artists and see some extraordinary examples of their beadwork, click here. The actual contest entries will not be shown until after July 10.
