Craftical Collective

The 'Craftical Collective' are a group of four very talented girls from LIverpool. I discovered there work at Between them there is a jeweller, a bead stringer, seed-bead artist and they can paint and make soap too!!!!!!! There really is no end to their talents.

This beautifully detailed and delicate fabric chocker retails at just $10 which is about £5.00. It is made from
soft black fabric which is adorned with delicately frayed hot pink and green organza. The detail added in the centre is a small cluster of faux pearls.

This is a really striking
pendant made of sea glass encased artistically in sterling silver wire.
What makes this piece more
interesting is the story (or mystery?) behind the sea glass. The stone was found washed up on Crosby beach in Liverpool (currently home to the stunning Anthony Gormley statues) and only it knows of it's amazing journey to those shores! The piece is available at $30 which is about £15.25

This stunning bag is also made by the 'Craftical Collective'
It was made from a pair of unworn jeans that needed a new purpose in life! It is decorated with a complimentary design of circles sewn in pretty orange silk thread for an amazing result. At just $20 or £10 it is really amazing!

This beautifully detailed bracelet is made from a staggering 150 beads on a gunmetal chain. The amount of work that has gone into making this beautiful piece is simply amazing and the girls are selling it for just $30 or about £15.25.

The girls will also happily take on bespoke work making unique hand crafted items especially for you. So, please visit there shop for a browse around and bookmark it for any future visits....
