Featured Designer of the Week

 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 featured designer is Backstory Beads.

Here is what ABS editor Erin Prais-Hintz had to say about her design:
"Anyone who can wrangle seed beads into something that is this stunning deserves a pat on the back. I am utterly amazed at the beautiful pattern that she created and I love the swirly focal bead from Marsha Neal and the way it is integrated into the design."

Here is Karin's blog post describing her entry and the way a chance meeting with a chocolate bar helped to save the day!

I was blown away when I saw this last week. I am so NOT a beader and I cannot imagine having the patience Karin showed (especially after so many false starts).

Such a beautiful outcome from perseverance and patience! Love this design and it's references to the painting in colors and pattern. Kudos!

Thanks to all who left comments here and on my blog. I think we were all doubly inspired this month - both by the Picasso and by the opportunity to send out a little encouragement to families through the Global Genes Project.
