Featured Designer of the Week: Malin de Koning


Each week 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 winner is Malin de Koning of Beading by Malin de Koning. You can read about Malin's earrings (and her other ABS Challenge-inspired design) here.


Here's what ABS Editor Rebecca Anderson had to say about Sue's piece:

"I absolutely adore these earrings! I love the vibrant yet rustic shades that Malin has picked out from this month's beautiful challenge piece, I love the painterly texture that the verdigris patina gives MissFickleMedia's swirls, I love their simple elegance and the embellished earwires.....and last (but certainly not least) I love how Malin has set them for this photograph. The thin branch is the perfect place to display these earrings. These are eminently wearable earrings! Fantastic work Malin."
