Miniature Jewelry

Posted on

It’s well  documented how much I love jewelry, even thouogh I hardly wear it. 😉 Well I’m back with another artist that makes awesome jewelry; this time of things in miniature.

Design by British artists Milla and Olya of AllimYalo, their jewelry is all hand made replicas of foods and plants in miniature. The detail that they’re able to achieve on such a small scale is just amazing. The fruit pieces show it off the best, imho, but it’s all fabulous work.

You’ll have some shipping time to wait for if you live outside of the UK, but everything is reasonably priced for the excellent craftsmenship that’s gone into it. If you’re looking for early holiday shopping, I recommend giving them a look. 🙂


Stained Glass Planters

Posted on

While not a huge fan of taking care of plants indoors (I tend to forget about them and kill them, my bad) I do love the sight of having them around. Even better is when it’s done in a beautiful or creative way. Such as with the lovely glass planters made by SNLCreations.

Based in Minto, Canada, artisan Susan Napper-LeDuc creats these beautiful planters out of stained glass and soldered metal. They come in quite the range of sizes, but most tend to stay under 6″ meaning they can be placed in almost any home. If plants aren’t your thing, she also has a lovely collection of stained glass decor pieces and really her whole store is worth a look through as it’s just lovely.
