Featured Designer of the Week - Mary Harding

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

This week I picked Mary Harding's intricately beaded necklace. I love that Mary focused on the wings of the Zephyrs and the flowered cloak. A beautiful mix of pearls, seed beads and stones set off Mary's unique flower beads. See more of Mary's work in her website.

Want to see your work featured on the Art Bead Scene? Our theme for the month of April is "The Birth of Venus" by Botticelli. The deadline to enter for the monthly prize is April 30th! Create something that combines the theme with art beads and then send in your submission for the April Challenge.
