Designer of the Week: Malin de Koning

Each Monday we feature the Designer of the Week. One of our editors pick their favorite from the Monthly Challenge entries. This week's featured designer is Malin de Koning!


ABS editor Lorelei Eurto has this to say about Malin's bracelet, 
"That curved focal is what draws my eye into this piece, as well as the curved
lines in the Klee painting. I love the bright and happy colors Malin uses to emulate the painting. Bead placement is so great, and draws your eye around and around, so many interesting things to look at here! 
Always a fan of mixed media, Malin throws in some soft silk too, and that
addition makes this divine!!"

If you would like to see more of Malin's jewelry on her Flickr or her blog!

 
This month's challenge "Insula Dulcamara" by Paul Klee.

Have been out of town and came home to a broken computer. What a wonderful treat to see you as Designer of the Week. You go girl!!
Love what you did with that polymer squiggle. All of a sudden it became important and a thing of beauty. That's talent!
