Featured Designer of the Week: Melissa Meman


Each Monday the Art Bead Scene features the Designer of the Week. One of our editors picks her favorite from the Monthly Challenge entries. This one is by Melissa Meman, and embodies the spirit of the painting "Sunrise" by artist John “Jack” Savitsky (1910–1991) - which is this month's challenge image - in several different ways.

This is what Art Bead Scene Editor Lynn Davis had to say about this piece:

"This necklace has the colors and textures of the inspirational piece. I love the use of Jennifer Jangles' house bead. And the topper is the enameled copper on the sunburst focal. A balanced and very sprightly combination."

You can check out the backstory on the enameling and composition on Melissa's blog.

This piece with its attention to the colors that leave you feeling warm and "sunshiny". This is definitely a work of art! Although, I can think of 2 dresses that I would be happy to wear it with. Beautiful!!!
