Luxuriously Embellished Earrings by Mignonne Gavigan

Mignonne Gavigan designs these stunning statement pieces that will make you stop in your tracks and admire each one of them. It all started one day, when was she walking home, with a small piece tied around her neck, gathering compliments. That piece had fallen from a beaded vintage gown. Next thing you know the brand Mignonne Gavigan was born that offered handmade embellished jewelry and other accessories inspired by couture gowns that now has a huge cult following. I am enchanted by the series of animal inspired earrings hand beaded with glass seeds, feathers, and gold platted hardware. These will make a perfect gift for someone who you want to splurge for this holiday season. Available here and here.

Old Brushes Brought Back to Life with Felted Animals by The Gentleman Felter

Simon Brown also known as The Gentleman Felter is a needle felt artist from a small village on the Northumbrian coast in the UK. He creates these amazing scenes combining hand felted animals and old brushes. His sculptures are incredibly life like that will make you do a double take to notice that what looks like grass or meadows is actually brush bristles!

"I find old, beaten up, heavily used brushes that nobody would look twice at and bring them back to life with tiny animals stabbed to life with wool, creating whimsical pieces filled with life, curiosity, and danger."

You can see more the artist's work and learn what goes behind the scene on Instagram.
