Designer of the Week - Lori Anderson

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 Lori Anderson's Castelo bracelet. "The raku beads are great compliment to the colors and abstract quality in this month's challenge painting.  I like the play of the shimmer of the pearls with the bright pop of red from the glass, it's a lovely study in texture and color! The clasp is also a nice final touch with a nod to the graphic quality of the inspiration." To see more of Lori's work visit her blog.

You still have a few days left to enter this month's drawing.  The prizes are amazing and your odds are pretty good! 

The inspiration for December is an Untitled painting by Lee Krasner. Read about the challenge details here and check out the prizes from Cindy Gimbrone, Mary Harding and Marsha Neal here.
