Incredible Portraits Drawn Inside of Recycled Jar Caps

"One Less Cap in Trash" is a project of Silvia Franco Santos a mixed media artist from Portugal for which she uses recycled old jar caps to create wonderful portraits of famous people, birds and animals. The drawings are made by scratching the china ink applied on the surface of metal caps and are approximately 7cm in diameter. 

The artist shares on her profile on etsy: "My inspiration comes from nature, life and people. I keep finding myself in the painting and drawing marks that are born on the paper. My dream is to be able to share the energy I feel in that moment with someone else in this great big world." 

If you have a piece in mind that you would like her to create then you can contact through her page on Etsy where she can also has some of her artwork available for purchase.

"Vintage Muse" Watch Collection

The only piece of jewelry I love to wear everyday is a watch. Not that I own a lot of watches but that's something I never leave house without. A watch that's comfortable on a wrist and has good aesthetics is a winner for me, it doesn't necessarily have tons of features. I am not a smartwatch kind of person. Fossil's new collection "Vintage Muse" (had me at vintage) comes in 9 stunning designs - from whimsical motifs of owls and foxes, to artistic kaleidoscope and southwestern skies. For this post I picked out some of the designs, you can find all the products from the collection on
