Designer of the Week

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

This week Jennifer Heynen has picked the August ABS submission created by Katie Nelson. The focal bead was created by Gwacie Beads.

Jennifer said this about Making Waves 2:

"I love the variation in the blues of the beads crochet. It looks exactly like ocean waves. I can tell Katie has spent quite a bit if time at the ocean, it is reflected in this piece."

Katie's work can be seen at her flickr page.

Want to see your work featured on the Art Bead Scene? Our theme for the month of August is a Japanese Woodcut Design titled Great Wave Off of Kanagawa by Hokusai Katsushiki - it's a classic. The deadline to enter for the monthly prize is August 31st! Click the link to get all the rules and information on how to submit your work.

Create something that combines the theme with art beads and then send in your submission for the August Challenge. The winner gets some fabulous prizes!

Yay! I am so excited that I got picked this week :o) It certainly makes my day better (considering the rest of my day involves a trip to the dentist...blah)!

Katie, that's a beautiful piece! I don't think I have the patience for bead crochet, but your piece makes me want to learn.

By the way, I started off the week with a visit to the dentist also---blech!
