Ran Hwang


You have to really get up close to fully appreciate the detailed work in these large scale installations, sculptures and wall art,
the creations of New York-based artist, Ran Hwang.  Originally trained as a realist artist, Hwang uses thousands of colorful threads, buttons, beads and crystals attached with long pins to create her incredible pieces. She describes the process as a form of meditation with the repetitive action and concentration evoking a Zen-like discipline.

You can view more of her work on her website.

Anna Tverdokhlebova


Loving these quirky handcrafted jewelry available in the Etsy shop, Breadcrumb Crafts.  The illustrated jewelry are the creations of Berlin-based illustrator and crafter, Anna Tverdokhlebova.  The artist was born in St. Petersburg where her focus was on book illustration but gradually her hobby of jewelry making became her job.

You can see her illustrations, jewelry and ceramics on Tumblr, Instagram
and, of course, on Etsy.
