Handmade Resin Bracelets

Designer Sarah Smith at Modern Flower Child is experimenting with embedding all manner of plantlife into her handmade resin bracelets. Dried ferns, flowers, bark, and even peacock feathers are frozen in time inside these clear time capsules, a process that takes up to three weeks from design to pouring resin, curing, and shaping the final piece.

What type of fauna and flora do you think Modern Flower Child’s designs should experiment with next? We’d love to see a Native woodland Ontario mix with ferns, foxglove and Geranium. Let us know what floral and fauna you’d like to wear in the comments below!

Just Listed – Vixen Dress

➸ Just Listed | VIXEN dress | Size 10 | $28.00Vixen

Whenever I wear this dress out other women run the other way. I suppose they are assuming that I am a predatory vixen who is out to steal their husbands and suck the blood of their children. Rowr.  Aren’t a size 10?  That’s okay!  We have heaps of vixen dresses in the shop.

Traditions Transformed

PresSometimes we feel like art has disappeared into the abyss of the modern World.  Picking_Wildflowers_sAs the World continues to develop, it often feels like the integrity and tradition that forms art is lost.  Until we (thankfully) stumbled across Kelly Louise Judd.  Us gals at Filthy Rebena immediately felt connected to Kelly’s work.  Upon first glance, her artwork appears to be what dreams are made of.  Each piece has this unspoken romance that makes us yearn for a magic potion that will morph our bodies into 2D gouache strokes — so we can crawl into our favorite moments of her paintings.  Due to the lack of 2D elixirs on the market, we spent a long time gazing into her artwork, getting caught up in the little nuances.  If you shake for themes of patterned fashions, plant life and animals – you must check out her artwork to awaken your folk soul.  Why?  To remind yourself we are all part of nature – which in turn brings the simplicity of life into focus.  Check out Kelly’s Blog here or her Etsy shop here.  She was even featured seller on the Etsy blog.  You go girl!
