Default 2014 Iditarod Beads on the Trail Call to Artists

Alaska Beads of Courage (BOC) artists are calling all LE artists to rise to the BOC Iditarod Challenge. This will be our third year of collecting lampwork beads to ride the exciting trail of the last great race on earth. Beads collected will be packaged along with the official BOC pewter Husky, musher thank you note, and a card to return with the bead with a personal note to a child from the musher.

Note to artists - suitable beads are those that can survive a 998 mile dog sled ride through the coldest and most beautiful country on earth. Of course we will be packaging your artwork for the ride and all pieces returned have survived the trip. See the following link on facebook for an album of what we've done in past years (

). We are asking artists to donate 12 beads (of any suitable medium). Two beads will ride the trail -- one for a child in the BOC Program, and one as a keepsake for the Musher. The remaining beads will be auctioned off at the annual Alaska BOC flame off.

We will let each artist know which musher is carrying your artwork so you can track them on the trail. There are 72 Mushers committed at this point so please help us meet the goal of each of them carrying handmade beads.

All beads due to Artmosphere Studio by Feb 24 to be packaged up. Delivery to mushers is on Thursday, February 27 to ready for the March 2 race start date.

Please send your bead to:

Artmosphere Studio
801 East 82nd Avenue, Unit 16A
Anchorage, Alaska. 99518

Please provide your contact information as well as your LE id.

thanks much in advance

Do you prefer 12 that all match or have the same theme, or pairs?

Thanks!

I generally make the carry beads in matched pairs. The may need a few non-matched to go into the fund raiser.

Thanks so much for providing an updated link. We will take anything you generously provide. We've been asking for 12 of the same or themed, but like many lampworkers, I have a tough time with sets... Especially 12 so try for a variation of a theme. Again, whatever you can send, we will happily take. Thanks again, Laura

So I'm assuming that you prefer small or medium sized beads rather than large focal size?

I think any size as long as they will hold up well to the ride. I know BOC is always asking for larger beads since they get a ton of the smaller ones

Thanks. I'll see if I can come up with some rugged beads. I'll avoid delicate raised decorations

Here are my 16 bead pairs on the way to the Iditarod today as soon as the ice here in the Sunny South clears enough to get out of our neighborhood.

Are the extra 10 beads auctioned off as a set, as pairs, or individually?

They are auctioned off as BOGO, buy one, give one, so 2 at a time. The winner receives their bead and the other one is given to BOC for the kids

I didn't realize that, mine are mailed, but not technically pairs. They are focal size too. They're all the same style, so hopefully they'll work out. I'm excited to have a musher carry two of my beads and to help BOC this way.

I will ask about the husky bead. There is a total mix of what comes in... 12 of the same, 12 totally different, big, small, just 1, etc. I'm excited that so many of you are sending beads in. Depending on how many artists we get to help determines how we split up the beads. If there are 70+ mushers, and we only have 30 artists, we will split up the sets and one artist's beads may go with several different mushers. SOOO, Many hands make light work. Laura
