Craft Pimp Blog Ring Week 2

It’s week 2 of the blog ring and time for me to introduce you to yet another lovely member of the craft pimp community. So I introduce to you Ruthie aka Ruth Duck!

Ruth makes some absolutely amazing and stunning bead pieces so let’s have a look at some shall we!

I love this pink ruffle necklace! Not only is pink my favourite colour but the feeling of movement in this piece is just something else!

And then we have this absolutely stunning beaded bead that i just know would be so tactile, i want to reach through the screen and touch it!

Finally we have a piece that is just completely mind blowing to me! I am absolutely useless with little tiny seed beads so i was already  pretty much in awe at what Ruth does and then i came across this bead embroidered scarab pendant and i had to pick my jaw up from the floor! I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of time and effort that goes into a piece like this but i would say it is definitely worth it because the outcome is just amazing!

You can read more about Ruth on her blog and see more of her work on her Flickr photostream.

I hope you will join me again next week when i will take a closer look at another of the wonderful craft pimp members!

Craft Pimp Blog Ring week 1

I’m a member on a new web forum called Craft Pimp which has been created as somewhere members can showcase their work and talents and also meet other crafters to share ideas, network and generally chit chat! It was decided we would start a blog ring to further showcase the talents of the members, and for the first post of this blog ring i would like to introduce you to Nicola of Smitten Kitten.

Nicola describes herself as a keen crafter and devoted hobbyist who is passionate about making clean cut simple stylish jewellery. And i would have to say i think she does exactly that!

This dragonfly pendant is one of my favourite of her pieces, it’s so simple and elegant and the colours are just matched perfectly!

♥ Fiery Dragonfly ♥ Sterling Necklace ♥

This pendant is another of my favourites, it’s so gentle and feminine, which is not really my usual style but this piece really appeals to me!

♥ Angels & Clouds ♥ Sterling Necklace ♥

Nicola’s talent doesn’t stop with jewellery though, she also made these fun and funky ribbon brooches!

The Urge ... to make brooches

You can find more of Nicola’s work on her website Smitten Kitten, her Flickr photostream and also on her Blog.

Join me next week when i will visit the wonderful crafting world of another Craft Pimp member 😀
