Margaret Nazon

Admiring this incredible beaded universe created by Margaret Nazon, an accomplished and recognized fabric artist living in a small fishing community of Tsiigehchic, Northwest Territories of Canada.   In 2009 she started beading cosmic images based on the Hubble space telescope pictures.  She creates galaxies, nebulae, stars and the aurora using glass beads of various sizes and stitches them to black velvet or canvas.  She studied Fashion Design at the Lethbridge Community College and Business Administration at the Medicine Hat College, Alberta and she owns her own craft business “Nomad Designs” in Inuvik, NWT.

More of her work can be viewed on her website and on Facebook.

Diana Renjina


Love these nature and folklore inspired hand painted wooden brooches and ornaments created by Riga-based illustrator, Diana Renjina. The wooden pieces are made from birch plywood delicately painted with acrylic paint and varnish.  Her main artistic focus is illustration but also wants to explore graphic and web design freelancing on a variety of projects.  

More of her work can be viewed on Instagram, Behance and Facebook.  Her brooches and illustration prints can be purchased in her Etsy shop, Knee Deep in a Cold Sea.
