Featured Designer of the Week - Kelly Angeley

If I Had Wings detail

Each Monday we will feature the Designer of the Week. One of our editors will pick their favorite from the Monthly Challenge entries.

My favorite from this month's entries so far is Kelly Angeley's If I Had Wings Necklace. I love how she combined the herringbone lariat with 2 long slender art beads. The fringe is such a fun mix of colors and shapes that pull all of the elements of the necklace together. I also like the combination of the earthy colors with the bright yellow, it reminds me of daffodils poking through the barren ground at the beginning of spring. It's a wonderful interpretation of our theme this month, Youthful Spirit.

To see more of Kelly's jewelry visit her website or flickr album.
