The August Challenge

Welcome to the August challenge! As this month sees the 2016 Olympic Games hosted in Rio we would like you to create something with an OLYMPICS theme.

You can email your entry at any time during the month. The challenge is open to beaders worldwide.

  • Entries must have been started on or after August 1st 2016.
  • You can make any item, it does not need to be jewellery.
  • You can use any craft technique but it must include beads.
  • Findings are exempt from the colour challenge.

Good luck everyone and happy beading!

Is there a color part to the challenge. I wasn't sure. Neat idea, btw.

Could you expand a bit in what you mean by Olympic theme?

This one is quite open to interpretation so anything that inspires you about the summer Olympic games: colours, shapes, particular sports, the torch, medals, the rings, the list is endless really. Research the Olympic games and see what inspires you!
