As with their other challenges, there is a Facebook voting contest. Only this time, there is a twist! Instead of the judging being entirely done by the ZnetShows staff, the voting is open to everyone! Voters will pick from a list of 20 designs pre-selected by ZnetShows. There are some nifty prizes:
Top Prize: $100 Gift certificate to ZnetShows
Second Prize: $75 Gift Certificate to ZnetShows
Third Prize: $50 Gift Certificate to ZnetShows
The winning design will be the one that best showcases the ZnetShows beads.
Now, on to the designs!! I selected a mixture of orange and blue beads, including fire agate drum/barrels, red aventurine faceted teardrops and puffed rectangles, sky blue glass quartz rondelles, and carnelian free form flat beads/pendants. I was so excited to get started creating that I forgot to take a picture right away, so this picture only has a portion of the beads.

I love dragonflies, and had been saving this awesome antique brass clasp for something special. The agate drum/barrels and carnelian cube beads really are set off well against the deep green of the handmade clay round and dragonfly bead by Shaterra.

This chunky large free form carnelian pendant bead was begging to be the "star of the show", so I needed to come up with a design to make it the visual centerpiece. The pewter celtic beads and toggle clasp add textual interest. One again I used the agate drum/barrels (they are becoming a favorite)!

Sometimes as a designer, you just feel like you are "in the zone". That's how I felt while creating this necklace and earring set. Nothing stands in the way of the beautiful ZnetShows beads from proclaiming their beauty. Check out the pretty red adventurine rectangle puffed beads!
