This is from my new collection of brooches made from reclaimed wood and found pottery from the Sierra de la Alpujarra.
Here’s a little tutorial I wrote on how to make a mer-cat brooch. :) http://ld-p.blogspot.com/2013/09/mercat-brooch.html
The summer may seem like a distant memory now, but just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t make super brightly coloured cheerful bracelets! See how here!
i make beanie hats! i also do custom designs instead of the cat (so far i’ve been commissioned: a pikahu, a rabbit, a rat, cacti and a sausage dog), and make lil’ felt brooches and stuff. i’d love it if you wanted to check my etsy.
DIY Wooden Gems (by fabricpaperglue)
How to make these gorgeous wooden faux gems with Fabric Paper Glue!
Kim Lawler from Finest Imaginary doesn’t do average laser-cut jewellery. Her ideas are so original you can almost see her brain ticking in each piece. She works in acrylic, wood, paper and cork, and understands the qualities of each piece, and how they can be combined to create distinctive, thoughtful, clever pieces. Her work has wit, design and integrity. We’re big fans.
Can you describe Finest Imaginary?
Finest Imaginary is the culmination of many days spent in an office, when all I wanted to be doing was making things with my hands. I love to play around with colour and shapes, and Finest Imaginary is the place I do that.
We love the way you think. Where do your ideas come from?
Where don’t they come from, more like. I find inspiration everywhere. I’m a massive animal lover (with my home being ruled by two kitties and one feisty golden retriever), so that obviously plays a lot into my creations. I’m obsessed with colour, geometric patterns, maps, and books. I listen to loads of podcasts about really random stuff, and might hear something that’ll spark a design idea!

Re-blogging because Kim’s work is ace, I’m wearing my badger necklace right now!

Today I made a not-so-good stop motion for the Bead Hive! (a bead shop I work at in Leeds!)
Wooden Geometric Pendant, Spalted Wood, Blue, White, and Yellow, Hand Painted
Available now on Etsy!
This pendant was made from spalted almond wood found in an old river bed about 10km from the village of Cádiar, Spain. It was hand carved and then painted with acrylics. It was then coated with several layers of satin varnish for protection. It has an antique bronze cable chain (lead & nickel free) which can be provided in various lengths.
This pendant is part of the Wooden Geometric collection and was inspired by living in the Alpujarra de la Sierra, an area nestled in between the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean. The design is based on geometric patterns used in Moorish architecture and hints at the splendour of such buildings as the Alhambra palace (1338-1390) in Granada, Andalucia.
