Something a bit different from me for this Deviant Discovery. A lovely bit of beadwork! I’m a bit of a space nerd deep down and a magpie for anything that is a bit sparkly so Nayanavi (aka bead boss Yana Vikulina)’s brooches have really hit the spot for me.
These 3 brooches make up the collection “Geometry & Space”, inspired by retro futurism and classic illustrations of space rockets. They are made from japanese and czech seed beads, Swarovski stars, Bugle beads, triangles, Miyuki Tila beads and bullion thread. All the little details are mind blowing! Go have a gander at the rest of Yana’s work on Instagram for more of her beadwork art.
