Artist of the week: i like Kalliopi Handmade!!
A little about Kalliopi: "I have been making little objects since I was a kid. Now I am an architect who draws things that other people make. I also create little wearable objects that are graphic and unique. I wear a brooch nearly every day and I'm a big collector of little things. I collect new and vintage buttons, beads, pre-loved jewellery, guitar picks, other guitar parts, resin beads, plastic and wire. Everything is reused, recycled or reinvented. Each piece is as unique as possible."
You can find out more about Kalliopi on her blog Kalliopi Handmade.
