Please excuse the image overload in today’s colorful Sunday post. But it was really hard to share only few out of the countless rich and dazzling works by artist Este Macleod. Aren’t these gorgeous?! Strongly inspired by flora and fauna, each of Este’s work is filled with countless colorful details that together become exciting and harmonious paintings. Love!

Now here’s a fun way of having your dog, cat, bird, brother, mother or entire family captured in a precious piece of art: custom portraits on pendants by Nicomade. Aren’t these the cutest? And you’ll even be able to carry them around wherever you go! I’d get me a bulldog just so that I can have them made on one of Nico’s pendants. No, I won’t do that of course, but he’s my favorite of the bunch!
Illustrated Jewelry are the best kind of jewelry! And these delightfully illustrated rings, earrings and pendants by Good After Nine just went straight to the top of my wishlist. All of the items are handmade by jewelry designer Nine and metal designer Don, who create their pieces together from Bangkok, Thailand.
You can find many more in their Etsy shop (I’ve got my eye on the peacock ring!)
Current crush: Danielle Clough’s embroidered bits of flowers, birds and butterflies. With stitches that are so incredibly detailed that it appears these colorful birds will fly away any second now! They are part of a collaboration with artist Danelle Malan and illustrator Daniel Hugo, in which they are creating 7 large pieces of artwork themed on the 7 indigenous trees found around the Silvan resort in South Africa. The project is still a work in progress and you can follow Danielle on Instagram to see how it’s moving along!
My Monday crush: lovely, messy illustrations of animals and botanical by Jane Ormes; a Bristol based printmaker who has a passion for pattern and the absurd. Love the colors and the chaos. Those quirky little dachshunds in that second piece.. so cute!
You’ll find Jane’s work available on print in her Etsy shop.
