wearable miniatures ...

little things.
mini things.
cute things.
All of the photos above are today's new listings in my online etsy store ( ).
I realised after posting all of these that my love for cute miniature versions of things is pretty obvious in my brooches! Strawberries, pianos, musical notes, roses, records ... bright, colourful, kitsch cuteness!

I wish I was in New York right now so that I could visit this exhibition at the Museum of Arts & Design.
It is an exhibition dedicated to paper and will feature paper based art works by 50 artists who explore paper as a medium rather than surface for art. Here are some photos of some of my favourites.
If you are lucky enough to be in New York, here are the exhibition details:
