Designer of the Week: Melissa Meman

Each Monday we feature the Designer of the Week. One of our editors pick their favorite from the Monthly Challenge entries. This week’s featured designer is Melissa Meman!

ABS editor Lorelei Eurto had this to say about Melissa’s entry for this week’s challenge: ” As soon as I saw the large pink flower, I was captivated. Once I went in for a closer look and discovered all of the detail, the wire wrapping, and intricate way Melissa put these earrings together, I knew these would be my pick for this week! I adore the color similarities between the Lautrec painting and the earrings.  The shape of the petals mimic the dancer’s dress and the detailing on the lampwork glass beads is a great correlation to the depth of detail in the painting.  It’s no surprise to learn that Lautrec is one of Melissa’s favorite paintings. These earrings say it all!”
