Purple Crafts – Secret Wood

Nature to wear!

The Canadian brand Secret Wood creates fine handmade rings with a dreamy twist. Each piece is realised  mixing fresh wood and coloured jewelry resin.

The magical switch is in the details – inside each ring you can see a miniature surreal scenery that takes inspiration from nature.

You can literally bring a landscape with you, isn’t it cool? For now the the brand produces just rings, but they are planning to create pendants too. Can’t wait to see them!

Marie Elaine Lalonde – Géomorphogenèse

Gorgeous!

The Canadian artist Marie Elaine Lalonde shows us her personal point of view in observing nature. I was particularly intrigued by her Géomorphogenèse series, where breathtaking landscape pictures become bold monochromatic art pieces.

Using the screenprint technique on wood and acrylic paint, Marie Elanie reinvents the landscape, transforming it into a magical and unreal world. Below some of my fave works of this series, enjoy!

Purple Crafts – Floti

Minimal style!

I just love the creations by the Greek designer Olga, full of bright color combinations, simple and chic. Her necklaces are made by polymer clay, in addition she uses other materials as cotton, leather, wood and paint.

The minimal final result is stunning and I couldn’t resist, so I bought a necklace for me! As you can see from the pictures above, I received a nice packaging and a perfect necklace. You can find her on Etsy, the shop is called Floti.

 

The New America

Each frame of this video is unique!

Enjoy this awesome animation created by the Brazilian director and graphic artist Nando Costa.

“The New America” is a short animation in which every frame was created by laser engraving its unique artwork onto a solid block of maple. Once complete, the entire sequence of +800 frames was then photographed and assembled into this motion piece.

You can buy the frames on Etsy, cool!
