Partner Picks Summer Challenge and Giveaway

**Attention! The Giveaway is now closed!**

Early last month we sent a call out to our Design Team members to see if they wanted to participate in a challenge. Those who volunteered were paired up and picked beads for their partners. They were asked to pick from a long list of ZnetShows inventory and choose 1 stone item, 1 cultured sea glass item, 1 glass pearl item, 1 base metal item, 1 Chinese crystal item, and 2 items of their choice (for a total of 7 items). As well, they were asked to use the beach as their inspiration when selecting their beads. We even created a   ZnetShows Design Inspiration Pintrest Board for reference.

The challenge was then for them to use at least one of each item their partner selected. They had the option of doing this in one piece or in several. They were asked to reveal their designs on or before the 6th, and today's the day! Check out what these talented individuals created.




In addition to the awesome designs, we're having a BIG GIVEAWAY. As a wholesaler of beads, we knew that a whole hank of beads was more than these ladies needed. So as their beads were packaged up, we held onto some of them for this giveaway. There are quite a few prize packages (25-30 of them actually) so you have a good chance of winning. The pictures above and below are just two samples of the prize packages.

The Giveaway is now closed! Thank you for your interest.

You can enter in several ways.
  • First and foremost, leave a comment below. Make sure your e-mail is either linked to your profile or leave your e-mail address with your comment so we can contact you if you win.
  • Follow the ZnetShows Facebook page.(Leave comment to let us know you did this)
  • Follow the ZnetShows blog (either through a FeedReader, Google Friend Connect, or some other method.) (Leave comment to let us know you did this)
  • Tweet, Share on Facebook, or Blog about the giveaway. Each of these methods will earn you an entry. (Leave a comment with your link for each way you did this.)

That's SIX chances to win!!
The giveaway will be open until 5pm (Eastern time) July 19th.
Good luck!!
