Featured Designer of the Week - Valerie Aharoni

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

This week I chose Valerie Aharoni's Tropical Oro. I love the rich red and golds of this necklace. It's a beautiful play of textures with the seed beads, crystals and polymer clay pendant. This has holiday glamour written all over it! Valerie's necklace is definitely covering the glitz. You can see more work of Valerie's work on her blog.
Our theme this month is "Puttin' on the Glitz!" You could be our featured designer next week! Create something that combines the theme with art beads and then send in your submission for the December Challenge.

What a coincidence that Valerie was announced as this year's Bead Star,, and her polymer clay/seed bead necklace is featured on the new cover.
