Featured Designer of the Week - Stories They Tell

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

This week I choose the Van Gogh inspired "Tramontane Necklace" by Stories They Tell. I love that the artist chose a color palette based on the painting. The beads are beautiful. The sparse pairing of the steel wire and chain echo the modern feel of the beads and accent the design perfectly. To see more work by the artist view the Stories They Tell flickr photostream.

Our theme this month is "Van Gogh's Irises!" 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 January Challenge.
