April 2021 Challenge Leonardo Tools

April 2021 Challenge - Spring Flowers

Your 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 from our sponsor, Leonardo Lampwork.
