Join the Challenge

ISGB would like to invite you to “take the challenge.” This is a non-competitive challenge designed to help our members grow as artists. It isn’t about making the perfect bead but is about experimentation and trying something new. Our hope is that it will help spark new creative energy. A random drawing from all entries will determine the winner of the challenge prize, a $100 gift certificate to be used at Frantz Art Glass & Supply.

The challenge is “Pantone Color Challenge”.  Using your version of the Pantone Color of the year, Peach Fuzz, create a bead or set of beads to be shared within our community.

Submit your entry: Please send one photo of your bead or bead set and artist statement to

Window for submission: February 1 - February 29, 2024. The winner will be announced in the March "Bead Release".
