Featured Designer of the Week: Molly Alexander

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....
Here is what ABS editor Heather Powers said about Molly's necklace:

"I love that Molly was inspired by the repetition of the building this month and that is what she translated into her necklace with the herringbone-wrapped beads. The copper is such a departure from the cool color palette and I like that she added in those silvers and blues with tiny bead clusters.  She was able to make something that fit her design style but found it's inspiration in our challenge."

You still have a few days to enter to participate in our blog hop and win fab prizes from this month's sponsors!  Visit here for complete challenge details.
