I just had one of those wonderful moments when you discover someone with heaps of talent. Olga Orlova has a terrific portfolio of beaded jewellery on her site.
This piece, called Queen of the Garden is pretty amazing. Check out the detail shot below and be sure to visit Olga’s site for more remarkable pieces.
I’m glad to see that people are still pushing at the boundaries of beadwork. Karen Paust is keeping things natural, but doing a magnificent job of it.
Over on her tumblr Maruyama Asami is quietly producing elegant embroidered vignettes that are super cool.
Vlada Homnyuk makes a wide range of needle felted goodies at her etsy store, from characterful bees…
… to these cool needle felted stone cushions for your home. I want one!
