Hand-Embroidered Bird Brooches Adorned With Beads

Lately, I have been spending time on Instagram looking for fresh talent and inspiration. Niem Erze of Croise Birds is the recent treasure whose work I stumbled across and instantly fell in love with. She is an artist based in Moscow, Russia who mainly hand-embroiders bird brooches. What makes her ornamental birds unique is the fine placement of beads and sequins to make wings and feathers of the creatures.

It's hard to choose a favorite, they are all lovely! I selected a few of the birds to share here which wasn't easy thing to do. Visit her on Instagram to view more of her fabulous work.

Birdtopia: Coloring Book by Daisy Fletcher

images via

Birdtopia is a wonderful coloring book by Daisy Fletcher a UK based illustrator with 10 years of experience as a freelancer. I recently stumbled across few of the illustrations without knowing that they belonged to a coloring book. On digging deep, I discovered the book consists of 70 pages featuring black and white illustrations including owls, hummingbirds, peacocks, Oriental darters, gentle blue tits and violet-tailed sylphs. 

The book also includes a key at the back to educate what birds are offered in the book to color. There are a few pages which come with pre-colored illustrations to inspire the reader. The book can be ordered online from here. Daisy's second book Into the Wild: An Exotic Woodland coloring book will be available in October and can be pre-ordered from here.
