Found a great way to commemorate the cities you’ve visited and loved. North Carolina-based
goldsmith, Ola Shekhtman, has created these delicate bands of cityscapes that highlight the city’s popular landmarks. The Siberian born jewelry designer learned her craft in St. Petersburg, Russia and also attended 3d modeling courses in New York City. She has since created twelve iconic skylines which she sells at her Etsy shop, Shekhtwoman.

Jules Hogan is a freelance knitwear designer based in the UK. She has created this evolving line of fashion and home accessories on a re-conditioned knitting machine in her garden studio. On an interview with Folksy market place she says:
“My specialisation is knitted textiles, but I also have experience in print, embroidery, and colour prediction. In 2008 I started developing my own collection. This allows me to carry an idea through to the end product – quite often working for a client, you come up with the initial idea, knit the fabric and then wave it farewell as the company produces the final piece.”

Sien Lewis creates custom jewelry inspired by her love of vintage. The artist scours the markets for vintage lace and transforms them into contemporary pieces of jewelry. In an article on Bridgewater Patch she says this about her creation:
“Creating a jewelry piece involves finding an appealing piece of lace, making a mold from the piece and, from there, casting silver or brass into that mold. The result is intricately formed patterns that could be said to resemble snowflakes, and which make very unique pendants.
These pendants are small works of art whose form and beauty have been taken from something existing to stand on its own. A shape within an old crocheted doily or piece of lace is now captured in precious metal to be enjoyed in a whole new light.”
You can follow her work here on Facebook and purchase her pieces on Etsy.
