- Three x Two Exhibit
- Three of Betty's disk beads were accepted into the ISGB's "Three x Two Exhibit."
"Three x Two" is a juried show featuring a collaboration between the International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) and metalsmiths from the Seattle Metals Guild (SMG).
The beadmakers create three (3) similar focal beads which will be incorporated by the metalsmith into pendants, rings or brooches.
The beadmaker and metalsmith will each retain one of the finished pieces.
The third piece will be on display during the 20th Anniversary Gathering conference at Facèré Jewelry Art Gallery and be available for sale to the public.
