Featured Designer of the Week: Malin de Koning

Each week the Art Bead Scene features a Designer of the Week. 
One of our editors picks her favorite from
the Monthly Challenge entries.
(We seem to be allergic to Mondays here on the ABS – but better late than never!)
week’s featured designer is….
Here is what ABS editor Heather Powers said about Malin’s Design:
“I love how Malin color blocked the beads, it leads the eye around the necklace like a little stroll through the French neighborhood in our inspiration painting.  The art beads/focals off to the side add interest and movement.  I love that while the design seems simple Malin managed to use three art beads paired with glass and stones that sets the necklace apart.”

    What a great piece! The glass beads make this an elegant piece, but the sweet little houses and the leaf component make it playful.

    I love it!

    "Bead colour-blocking" sounds like just the inspiration I need to move my designs to the next stage. Thanks, Heather, for accompanying me on this "stroll", and thank you, Malin, for sharing your vision!

    Really wonderful design! I love the way the elements play off one another. The leaf focal adds a really beautiful, eye catching touch to it.
