Here is what Stephanie had to say about her 3rd place piece. “Omnificent Exotica is my no holds barred study and exploration into the Viking Knit weave. It is a very versatile weaving technique that adapts and compliments other techniques quite well. It started with an experiment to see if I could work with and blend multiples wires to achieve a blended, variegated effect . From there it expanded into freeform technique that was adapted into an exotic floral theme."

Here is a design process tip from Stephanie: "Always question your methods and technique. Just because 'It’s always been done this way' doesn’t mean that’s the limit. Never limit yourself and seek to experiment and explore what is common."

Stephanie continues, "I entered the BeadDreams competition because I find that sometimes I need the challenge and deadline scenario to make myself focus on a single fulfilling project. It forces me to push the envelope from experimentation to realization."
