I simply adore Elsa Mora's work. She makes magical little things with beads, felt, embroidery, papercuts and more. Her brooches are colourful and lovely... This one in particular caught my eye. Inspired by a vintage brooch she saw on Etsy, Elsa set out to recreate it using seed beads in place of jewels -- with beautiful results.
Also definitely worth a look is her tutorial on making a brooch using a papercut and polymer clay. Using this technique, she crafted this super cute fox brooch. I'm looking foward to trying this out soon!
