Embedded with real leaves, flowers, tree parts and shells, these beautiful hand-crafted jewelry are made by artist Sarah Smith in Coos Bay, Oregon. These elegant jewelry with fragments of nature are embedded within transparent resin, allowing you to carry a bit of natural beauty with you at all times. Each piece is created entirely by hand – from design to prepare embedded parts to pour of resin, curing, and then shaping, the whole process is time-consuming and each trinket can take up to 3 weeks to complete. These transparent jewelry comes in different color and embedded fragments and each one is entirely individual and the artist has a range of earrings, pendants, and bangles available. Check the whole gallery on artist’s website.
This ingenious series of crafted illustrations was created by Jordan-based illustrator Shamekh Al-Bluwi. Shamekh sketches his fashion illustrations on paper then meticulously cut out the form of the outfits. This simple process turns the silhouette of each illustrated garment into a window, allowing things like buildings, trees and clouds to serve as color and pattern of clothing. Working with scenery he sees day to day, Shamekh is able to share not only beautiful drawings but a new way of appreciating the beauty of everyday life. I have to say, it is quite interesting to see the effect of wearing all kinds of buildings on body.

Two years ago, we have featured the works of U.S. artist Susan Beatrice, who created steampunk animal sculptures from old watch parts, and today we will bring more spectacular works from her. With the environment in mind, the New Jersey-based artist Sue Beatrice, aka All Natural Arts, made those lovely little creatures entirely out of discarded and found objects (gears, sprockets, vintage pocket watches, etc.) You probably will be amazed how many animals can be created from those discarded materials, dragon, cat, mouse, rabbit, crab and so on. All those effort is made to encourage reusing instead of disposing and thereby accumulating waste on a planet that has limited resources. See more of Susan’s work on her facebook page.
Photograph of reflection isn’t something new, however, to find these hidden world need keen eyes. Focusing mainly on rain puddles, Guido Gutiérrez Ruizuses their natural mirroring ability to take shots which appear to contain buildings and landscapes doubled over. Take a look at below breathtaking photos and see how Ruiz described his work.
Do you ever wonder how those exaggerating dresses got designed? Where the designer can inspiration from? Fashion enthusiast Liliya Hudyakova try to get her answer by the interesting photo series “Fashion & Nature”. Hudyakova places images from the runway side-by-side with photographs of nature, drawing an irrefutable likeness between the two. Although, we don’t really know what those fashion designers think about when they make their deigns. Hudyakova’s photo looks quite convincing for us. As the old saying, art comes from life, fashion is a reflection of the beautiful world that surrounds us.
Made by “merryme”, the mysterious artist behind the DAINTYme store on etsy, these enamel three-piece rings will drive your finger wild. These clever designed rings can be worn on one finger to form an animal, like the cat, deer or fox ring or worn on three finger to make it look like the animal is doing something fun, like the squirrel after an acorn. With the holidays approaching, this is definitely something worth keeping in mind when you start brainstorming unique gifts.
“Computer Component Bugs”, is another great example of recycled art, which are beautiful miniature sculptures of winged insects created by UK-based artist Julie Alice Chappell using circuit boards found inside discarded electronics. To build a tiny insect like below, Chappell needs to break down the circuit borads and find propery components based on their pattern then patiently put them together to create vivid bugs. When asked why she used material like that, artist said “The recycled bits of cultural refuse that are woven throughout my work represent a direct encounter with the excesses of modern living highlighting the dangers of planned obsolescence and e-waste in the environment. The work displays an aesthetic beauty whilst offering a socio-political discourse, attempting to reclaim waste and the destruction of the natural world, in the beauty of visual art.”
