Designer of the Week: Stephanie's Sammelsurium

Each Monday the Art Bead Scene features the Designer of the Week. One of our editors picks her favorite from the Monthly Challenge entries.

ABS Editor, Cindy Gimbrone chose this week's design winner, It's a Wrap by Stephanie's Sammelsurium

Cindy says this about "It's a Wrap"....Stephanie took up the ABS monthly challenge as an incentive to design outside her usual color palette. The warm colors of the painting inspired her to use orange to great effect. The bracelet is a real eye catcher and is bright and cheery just like the painting. Nicely done!"

You can see more of Stephanie's work on her blog.

If you'd like an opportunity to be featured as the Designer of the Week, there's still time to join in on August's monthly challenge!
