The Bead Dreams Competition and Exhibit takes place annually at the Bead & Button Show, and the pieces submitted to the competition are displayed in the Bead & Jewelry Marketplace throughout the show. In the Seed Bead Jewelry category, artists may submit one piece or an ensemble of jewelry such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, or sets of beaded beads predominantly made with seed beads or bugle beads. The first-, second- and third-prize winners from 2011-2015 are shown here; the category and prizes were sponsored by Beadalon for those years.
