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 A Half-Baked Notion.
Here is what ABS editor Rebecca Anderson had to say about her design:

"I love that Monique has really taken up the challenge here and has made not only the focal emelent, but the sweet silvery fish, and also the ship's wheel button closure as well. All the elements she has used add to the nautical feel - the colour scheme is perfect but somehow the white cotton twisted trim which looks so like boat line. I can practically smell the salt breeze from this one!"

Monique did a fantastic job recreating the nautical theme. Her polymer clay work is super.

Monique's bracelet is unique and so very tuned into this month's inspiration. Love it!

Rebecca, I so appreciate that you have featured my bracelet "Catch of the Day". I've always been afraid of "novelty" style, but this was so much fun (after the over-baking episodes LOL) that I may try more in future!

Cynthia and Lynda, thanks for your kind comments!
