Wire Sculptures by Ruth Jensen

Delightful wire sculptures of birds and animals by Ruth Jensen a sculptor based in Minnesota. 

She uses her own unique wire twisting technique which doesn't involve soldering or gluing. She says: "I make each sculpture one twist at a time, without patterns or molds, using bazillions of pieces of straight wire." Her carefully woven intricate sculptures are inspired by the natural world owl, fox, rabbit and birds are often her primary subject matter. Her sculptures can be purchased from her online store Sparkflight. While you are there, don't forget to check out her beautiful wire jewelry.

Thanks, Rebecca.

Temple St. Clair Jewelry

Temple St Clair established her jewelry company in 1986 in Florence, Italy. She started out her career by designing jewelry for Barneys New York in 1987 and ever since then she has worked with several reputed brands including Bergdorf and Saks. 

Temple shares: "Each object that I create carries the soul of the history of the artisans of Florence."

Her pieces are unique in design and of highest quality in fine jewelry that's becoming an essential for an in-the-know clientele. Even if you didn't know, you must have seen her jewelry in fashion and lifestyle magazines. I am swooning over that stunning owl cut out bracelet which by the way doesn't come cheap. It costs a whooping $18,500! But the good news is, to visit her website and drool over her gorgeous pieces is absolutely free of cost :)

Sarah Dennis: Papercut

I received an email last week from Sarah Dennis who introduced me to her amazing paper cut artwork. Sarah is a  freelance illustrator and artist based in Bristol. She experimented and was inclined towards art ever since she was a little girl. Sarah gained a degree in illustration at the University of The West of England, and worked on children's books, editorials, designs and animations. She handcrafts these delicate paper cut collages influenced by nature creating a fairy-tale like whimsical and dreamy worlds.

You can follow her blog to get an update on her new work and for the pieces available to buy, visit her online store.
