Julia Gorina: Miniature Textile Brooches

Happy November everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Halloween. I leave you for the weekend with the gorgeous work by a Russian artist Julia Gorina who I discovered through this website. She hand makes these miniature birds and owls brooches using vintage fabric and laces that are hand painted and meticulously embroidered. I am in awe at the painstaking detail in each piece. Love!

Have a beautiful weekend! I'll see you back on Monday.

Owl Lover 2014 Calendar is growing every year and this year's calendar has 50 artworks from talented artists from all over the world! This is a huge accomplishment for all of us.

I hope you take a peek and make your own calendar from the gallery of 50 images and download it for free. There is a pre-made version of the calendar ready to be downloaded with hand picked artwork for each month.
