Designer of the Week: Mary Jane Dodd

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

This week’s featured design is from Mary Jane Dodd!
You can read about the creation of Mary Jane’s designs on her blog here and visit her website to see more of her organic and earthy jewelry designs.
Lorelei notes, “I picked  Mary Jane’s earrings because of they complicated, yet beautiful design. The small white pearls mimic the almond blossoms of the painting, and I love how the soft blue green silk peeks through the wire. Mary Jane’s use of fiber in her designs adds a phenomenal softness to anything she creates. I can imagine these lightweight earrings would be comfortable to wear. I think they emulate the Van Gogh painting perfectly.”
If you’d like to see your work featured here next week be sure to enter our monthly challenge inspired by Vincent van Gogh Stichting’s Almond Blossoms painting.
