Fiber Art Jewelry by Natalia Lubieniecka

A while ago, I featured Natalia Lubieniecka's amazing soft sculptures on the blog. Natalia is an artist, sculptor and a jewelry maker who combines all the skills to create wearable pieces of art. She has been working on a ongoing series of pendants and brooches that are handcrafted from vintage fabric. Some of her pieces use nontraditional materials like glass crystal for mushroom, alarm clock to nest a spider, and natural stones to decorate feathers. Her one-of-a-kind birds and animals seem to belong to some old cabinet of curiosities.

Her daily routine involves her hand-sewing stuff, she likes to learn through the everyday process and get better at it. "I have always with me a fairy-tale work-bag. There are pre-prepared parts for my jewelry." For updates on her new work you can join her on Facebook and for work that's available for purchase you can go to her online store - My Soul Design.
