Monthly Challenge Winner!

Our winner for this month's challenge is Melanie Connor from Radiant Gem Jewelry.

Congratulations Melanie! You've won an awesome collection of beads from Off Center Productions!

Here is a behind the scenes look at our monthly drawing:

1. How is the monthly winner picked?

All the qualifying entries are printed out and put in a lucky box, stirred and shaken up and one winner is randomly chosen.

2. Sometimes I see a detail photo of an entry, does that count for two entries?

No, if there is more than one photo in the pool, only one photo is placed in the drawing.

3. The ABS editors sometimes throw in their hat, do their entries get placed in the drawing?

No, we are just having fun and providing inspiration.

4. Can someone win 2 months in a row?

No, if someone has won and entered the next month their entries aren't included in the drawing. We do encourage the winner to join in the fun though!

5. Sometimes I post an entry and never see it in the pool, what happened?

All the images are approved by our editors. After 48 hours if your image isn't showing up in the pool, it wasn't approved. Remember each entry must have at least one art bead, pendants by themselves do not qualify and your entry needs to somehow reflect the challenge theme.

The August challenge and sponsors will be announced on Monday. Don't forget to check out Studio Saturday with Gaea to win a free pendant.
