These beauties are made by Australian artist Andrea Shaw of Stampel using reclaimed wood. I think they look like little art installations. They really display the jewlery beautifully don't they? This would make a great kids DIY, especially if you used stamps for the patterns. By the way, the necklaces on the right are from Stampel too. Andrea has a real flare for color combinations.
I found this gorgeous driftwood creation on My Paradissi. Instructions on how to make it can be found on Lovely Indeed. I love the combination of the raw, natural wood with the gold. I actually own a beautiful, shapely piece of driftwood I've been saving for just such a project. Looks like its time has come!
Since I love them both, I plan to have a go making each design. If both work out, I'll hang one in the bedroom and one over my desk =) Which do you prefer?
