The article features the beadworks of artists in Europe and North America. The four major artists whose work contributed much to the medium includes Joyce Scott, Jacqueline Lillie, Joseph Barbaccia and Natasha St. Michael. Scott has earned more recognition than the three other artists because her achievements are worth exploring and she redefined the boundaries of beadwork wherein most of his artworks conveys the message about Yoruba cosmology, socio-political structure and religion. Lillie is another longtime leader in contemporary beadwork and was regarded as Europe's most accomplished beadwork jeweler whose work won First Prize for the first time in the publication's design competition. Babacia and St. Michael were new to the field but their contributions deserves serious attention.
