On the hunt for earthy, rustic jewelry? Here are some superb pieces from New England-dwelling Morgan of the shop Cloven. Morgan, who enjoys using natural materials, says it’s “nature’s rustic and raw beauty … [that is] Cloven’s strongest and most endearing inspiration.”
Using techniques like carving stones to reveal other naturally beautiful colors and hand-hammering metals for a textured and rustic effect, these lovely necklaces, bracelets and earrings are show-stoppingly gorgeous.
Check out a few of my favorites:

Seeing these beautiful paper lamps and candlelights by UK-based artist Hannah Nunn made my eyes light up! Ten years ago, Hannah began making paper cut cards and enjoyed the silhouettes that were created when she held the cards up to a window. One of her friends suggested that she make lights and voila, Hannah’s paper cut lamps were born. Read more about Hannah via her Etsy profile.
Aren’t they a marvel? Illuminate your world with these breathtaking beauties!
Hannah has a book coming out in November of this year entitled illuminate highlighting 45 lighting artists from around the world and showcasing photos of their beautiful creations. Visit illuminate to learn more about the book.
Tea collection currently has some cute clothing for girls. My oldest daughter, who turned four last week is really into what she deems “girl colors” lately: violet, pink, and red. So I put together a little ensemble from Tea collection (many in the under $20 range, save for the shoes) based on “girl colors”.
I kind of want that dress and those shoes for myself!
pssst. Stay tuned next week for a “Tea for Boys” post.
Get ready to be enchanted by some of the most innovative works of art by Croatian graphic designer and illustrator Estera of Inside Creation, whose shop’s name is derived from “years of spiritual exploration of the ways of the world and [her] own existence inside this reality”.
It was awe at first sight when I happened upon Estera’s work, infused heavily with nature and fairytale-esque themes. What fairytales and other stories come to mind when you look at her work? I can spot Alice in Wonderland, in at least one of the images below.
Estera’s piece “The Storyteller” conjures up memories of The Neverending Story — one of my favorite childhood movies — for me.
I’ve mentioned before that my favorite insect is a butterfly. I see them as ballerinas of the insect world, graceful in flight and seemingly light as a feather.
