Designer of the Week

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

This week's featured designer is Jen Judd Rocks!

Here is what ABS Editor, Lori Anderson, has to say about the chosen designs:


One of the things that immediately struck me was Jen's use of texture.  Texture captures the senses and begs to be touched.  

The lampwork beads by Julsbeads, HMB Studios, and Donna Millard all pick up the colors of "Ophelia", particularly the beautiful ribbed rounds, which look like the painting itself.  I also like how Jen chose to use just a hint of yellow, as yellow is such a strong color it can easily overpower a design.

What can I say?  I love it all and would wear it all with pride!
