Marsha Wiest-Hines wins first place in the Fine Arts at the Minnesota State Fair!

I was delighted to read that Marsha won in the new category, Art Jewelry. It is very hard to even jury into the Fine Arts competition at the Minnesota State Fair (something like 15% of entries were accepted last year); the competition is fierce. Congratulations to Marsha of Haute Ice Beadwork for winning! She also won an award from the Upper Midwest Bead Society for her piece, Half a Crown. Read more on Marsha’s blog. If you’re unfamiliar with her work, spend some time browsing her blog, you’ll thoroughly enjoy it.

  1. Dulcey, thank you for the mention. I am enjoying looking through your blog as well. Are you a member of the Upper Midwest Bead Society? I am wondering if we have met. I am absolutely dreadful with names, unless I see then in print… the trouble with being visual. :o) I’m going back to see if I can discover where you live.

    1. You’re most welcome! (and thanks) I’m looking forward to seeing your piece in person — Saturday, I think? I’m a lapsed UMBS member who also lives in the metro; I don’t know if we’ve met as I’m not good with names either. My most noticeable feature is a very long braid.
