Lapidary Journal and Step by Step Beads 2007 Bead Arts Awards winners can now be viewed online or in the Nov/Dec Step by Step Beads magazine. The jurors for this year's awards were Valerie Hector, Gail Crosman Moore, and Margie Deeb. One of my favorite pieces in the bead category is the bead by David Palnick of Inside Out Beads (shown right). To view all of the finalists, click on the title above - you will be redirected to the Step by Step Beads website where you can download the 1 MB pdf. Applause to everyone who entered and congratulations to everyone who placed.
