Featured Designer - Karyn of Plus Size Bangles

Each Monday the 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;
 Karyn of Plus Size Bangles!
Here is what ABS editor Shannon has to say about this special piece;
"The professionalism of the photo lept out at me from the entries page and when I clicked to get a closer look, I totally "got" this necklace. I was really excited to see the close up texture of the hemp as it pulled from the burlap in Lillie Mae's quilt.  The colors and image of the resin bezel a perfect souvenir of such a treasure as "Housetop".
 
Please take time to view Karyn's other earthy but elegant offerings in her etsy store.

I love it!!! The use of fiber makes the necklace a bit different, and also lets the focal really stand out. I like the little notes out to the side too.
