Designer of the Week

Each Monday we feature the Designer of the Week. One of our editors pick their favorite from the Monthly Challenge entries.

This week Lynn Davis has picked the August ABS submission created by Patricia at TheColorofDreams. Patricia hails from Florida, she must have lots of watery inspiration to her creativity.

Lynn said this about The Great Wave Bracelet:

"Patricia has captured the spirit and colors of the print with her mokume gane work on the handmade beads. If you look closely at the beads you can see the swirl of the water and the foam, the bracelet is a simple design like the japanese woodcut print, but visually lovely and interesting."

Patricia's work can be seen on her blog and at her Etsy site.

Want to see your work featured on the Art Bead Scene? Our theme for the month of August is a Japanese Woodcut Design titled Great Wave Off of Kanagawa by Hokusai Katsushiki - it's a classic. The deadline to enter for the monthly prize is August 31st! Click the link to get all the rules and information on how to submit your work.

Create something that combines the theme with art beads and then send in your submission for the August Challenge. The winner gets some fabulous prizes!

Wow. These are beautiful and they go perfectly with the inspiration picture. I was wondering, is any one else having trouble seeing the pictures in the ABS Flickr group? I uploaded a photo last week, and it hasn't shown up in the group. Patricia's photo isn't there either. IS any one else having this problem?

The colors make my mouth water. Very nice Lynn and congratulations!

Yes I'm having the same problem to. I don't even see Lynn's bracelet or anyone else's. What's UP???

I am so honored that you choose my bracelet. I had so much fun making it and loved the inspiration of the print. Thank you.

Be sure to put the tag on your uploads when you put them on Flickr, then it's possible to search for them across all the photos and they'll be found through the tag, even if they haven't found their way to the ABS group yet.
