Thank you all for making our first Make It Challenge a huge success! There were so many gorgeous and creative entries, and we have never been more proud to be a part of your beading community. Choosing the winners for this Superduo Challenge was no easy task, but it was one that we enjoyed every step of the way. beadshop.com received over 100 stunning entries, which will all be shared next week in our June 5 newsletter and on Facebook.
We hope you love the winning bracelets. You will have a chance beginning June 5 to view all entries and vote for your Fan Favorite, so stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter, if you haven’t already.
First prize of $250 Gift Certificate went to Diana Elizondo, with her inventive way of using Superduos in Starry Night Forest. Anne Reagan took Second Place ($150 Gift Certificate) with Sand and Sea; we love how she adapted West County Cuff by Brittany Ketcham to this Challenge. Beach Sunset took third place ($75 Gift Certificate) by Karen W. as it was hugely popular with judges for her imaginative use of color and materials. And last but not least, we want to pay homage to both Knowing One’s Blue Garden by Lynne Goodwin and Peacock by Magen F. Each will receive a $50 Gift Certificate. They are not only beautiful entries, but each artist allowed us to use her entry to inspire other contestants. So, thank you!
And every entrant will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to beadshop.com, so thank you!
