Malaysian graphic designer Tang Chiew Ling has done a series of fun illustrations using leaves to create a mix of art, fashion and illustration. He has incorporated colours, texture, form and the natural withering behaviour of leaves for his artwork.

Below you can see the work by another Malaysian artist called Hong Yi who uses the Gerbera flower petals to experiment and create exotic birds.

Look at how pretty and delicate Olga Inoue’s jewellery is !! She fills glass beads and tiny bottles with dry flowers, leaves, moss and other beautiful things she finds in forest and gardens. On her blog, she writes that you can send her “little nature treasures as seeds, stones, dry flowers, twigs, anything” and she will try to create something out of it for you. What a lovely thought, isn’t it?

Olga used to be a teacher at a development centre in Russia, teaching children how to create stuff by themselves and she draws her inspiration from children and nature which you can clearly see in all her work – drawings, postcards, pottery and other miniatures.

Beautiful jewellery by sisters Danielle and Jodie.





Free People is an American brand for the twenty-something girl, who is smart, creative, confident and comfortable in all aspects of her being, free and adventurous, sweet to tough to tomboy to romantic. A girl who likes to keep busy and push life to its limits, with traveling and hanging out and everything in between. Who loves Donovan as much as she loves The Dears, and can’t resist petting any dog that passes her by on the street.

I enjoy going through the Free People website for their great sense of fashion and aesthetics well put together for their online customers. These pictures have been taken from The Cult of Style blog created from the Free People August 2013 Catalog.

Stacking big bangles and cuffs is in trend this season. You can combine and play around with shapes and colors to make that perfect bold accessory for the plainest outfits.  Resin bangles have an organic look which is something I quite like about them. I especially love the transparent ones which pick up colors of what you’re wearing. They can be handcrafted and personalized to suit your tastes and what’s more is that they can very easily be made at home.  Simple and understated, these pieces of jewelry can become your very own wearable art. So I have to try this out soon.

I have added an instructional video below for those of you who are as excited as me to try making bangles this weekend.

German watch makers Grieb & Benzinger are known for their handmade watches, based on vintage high-end movements, which are skeletonized to the max. The new white gold collection is called Shades of Grey and comprises 4 different models, made on request of their clients. Such a fabulous monochrome collection.
