Designer of the Week: Inspiration

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

ABS Editor, Cindy Gimbrone had to be creative this week due to the lack of December entries on Flickr. So, to light the fire of creativity, Cindy chose a selection of art beads and findings to help your jewelrymaking muse!

Heather's Garnet Kiss bead reflects to deep colors of this month's painting:

The deep purple and blues in this Jangles Ceramic Pendant fit the color palette.

There is inspiration to be had in buttons! ABS Editor, Tari Sasser make graphic buttons which are well suited to the graphic nature of Untitled.

Lynn Davis offers a graphic heart in her Etsy shop you might find suits your design.

Cindy Gimbrone develop a color palette from Krasner's painting, Untitled to create her versatile double dips. Double Dips can stand alone or added to other beads:

Is your muse whispering in your ear? It's time to create!

We look forward to seeing your submissions on Flickr!

I put this painting out on my desktop so I could get some musing vibes from it. I finally figured out one of the things it was saying to me...Dora Schubert glass beads. She uses white (or black) to add patterns to her colorful palate. Check them out:
Hope you enjoy! I love her work. :) Jen
