April Stone/Glass Jewelry Challenge

Last month I challenged our group of talented designers to move from our Cultured Sea Glass themes to some items from our warehouse that may not otherwise get much attention.  I called this the "Diamonds in the Rough" challenge.

Pick Your Diamonds
After doing some digging in the database and flushing out all the items that did not get much exposure in the past few months, I gave them a list to choose from.  Each designer picked a few items that caught their eye and I added a few to spice up the mix.  If you've been in the industry a while, some of these items may bring flashbacks!  They are beauties overlooked by everyone in our rush for what's new, what's fresh... but not any longer!

It was our belief that these diamonds just needed some love and attention.  The designers on our team were ready to answer the calling!  We will reveal their creations on Znetshows Facebook page and also in our Jewelry Gallery as they come in.  A final Blog hop will be announced once we have all the entries.

Winners Picked by Facebook Likes
And this time, there's going to be a twist: a Facebook voting contest! Instead of the judging being entirely done by our own staff, we're going to open up the voting for everyone!  Our staff will pick the top 20 designs and then allow all our Facebook fans to vote on who the winners are.

Top Prize: $100 Gift certificate to ZnetShows
Second Prize: $75 Gift Certificate to ZnetShows
Third Prize: $50 Gift Certificate to ZnetShows

Watch for New Designs
Keep an eye out for posts as designers finish their creations on our Facebook page.

Jewelry Gallery is always open.

Stay Tuned...
