Featured Designer fo the Week – Maire Dodd

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

This week I picked Maire Dodd’s Blooming Spirituality Bracelet. I’m completely won over by the color palette of Maire’s bracelet, it so Monet! There is also something calming about the symmetrical design that seems to come from the inspiration of the painting too. To see more of Maire’s work visit here etsy shop.

Want to see your work featured on the Art Bead Scene? Our theme for the month of May is Monet’s Water Lilies. The deadline to enter for the monthly prize is May 31st! Create something that combines the theme with art beads and then send in your submission for the May Challenge.

    This bracelet is gorgeous! I really want to try to make it! The silver beads remind me of something that I’ve seen at Stones and Findings? They have some cute charms there too.
