Remember the Art Bead Scene Color Challenge based on a palette from the Spring/Summer 2010 Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Designers?

And the winner is…Lyn Foley! For a prize Lyn receives two year’s worth of Color Reports and a $50 gift certificate from Humblebeads.com. Judges included Marcia DeCoster, Jane Dickerson and Lorelei Eurto. Here is Lyn’s winning piece, and the two stunning runner-ups:

Gretchen leaned toward lighter, paler expression, Lyn and Anna used bright, fully saturated version of the palette members.
