Art Festival, Timisoara, Romania, October 22, 2016



Before the summer of 2016  I decided to participate in the Jewelry competition, in Timisoara, Romania. The competition is organized by Marisha Zaporojan (the event planner) and Ana Zaporojan, (bead jewelry artist and coordinator), two enthusiasts of handmade jewelry. The International event is in its fourth year. It gathers both well known jewelry designers as well as younger artists from all over the world.



I gathered my 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 BOTB necklaces and I sent them via USPS to Romania.

Battle of the BeadSmith is a annual International Competition "a celebration of Bead Artistry around the World" which became a Facebook sensation, due both to the leader, Steven Weiss who organized and coordinated BOTB and to the very talented bead artists who had the opportunity and the courage to compete. I participated every year in this competition starting with 2012.
