Featured Designer of the Week: StaciLouise Originals

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 week's featured designer is StaciLouise!

Here is what ABS editor, Erin Prais-Hintz had to say about this design;

"With my own recent experiments in etching, I was delighted to see someone else working on perfecting that technique. I know how hit or miss that process can be, so I really appreciate that StaciLouise chose to etch her own original design as the artwork. I love the stitching on the fabric and leather, the brass tube rivets that add a little contrast, the handmade swirl clasp out of wire and the little pearl that dangles in the back. A very simple, yet intriguing design."

View more of her work here at her blog and at her website.

Want to see your work here next week? Enter our monthly challenge for a chance to be featured! Be sure to add ABS April as a tag to your photo and make sure you allow us to download your photo so we can prepare our posts that feature you.

And don't forget to post a link to your blog post on the challenge! Deadline for the blog hop is Thursday, April 28th (try to make it early so that I can find them all before I post about it). Watch for the blog hop happening here on Friday, April 29th!

Enjoy the day!

Thanks so much guys! I am honored to be chosen!

As for the etching....I have only ever done electro-etching. I try to keep my studio as green as possible, especially with little ones running around, so no harmful chemicals for me. Here is a great tutorial on it!
Once you get your set up together, its very easy, and fast. Its a great way to be able to bring your originals drawings to life in jewelry!

Thanks again!
