Argentium sterling silver wide ring band with abstract Celtic inspired pattern.

New shiny ring in my shop! This time it is a hand forged massive textured Argentium sterling silver ring band with abstract Celtic inspired pattern. As it is Argentium silver and not traditional sterling silver the band it self and the pattern were fused and not soldered in place. Which is what I like so much about Argentium and off course the fact that it is a tarnish-resistant sterling silver that is 100% recycled.

Nuno felt My first piece of clothing - Nuno felted top merino wool and silk in Sky blue and Mint green

As some of you already know I’ve started making handmade felt clothing and accessories in December 2018 and I’ve finally had a chance to photograph my first piece of clothing on a model. I’ve finished this summer top in March but only now had the time to take pictures. The top is made of finest 16 microns Merino wool and lots and lots of silk. The decor is silk, viscose and bamboo fibers and wool yarn.

Felted wool slippers for children - My first try at making shoes!

I love working with wool, love the versatility and all the endless possibilities what it offers. You can make the softest baby clothing and blankets with it but at the same time one can make shoes, carpets and even housing (Yurt). So here I thought I’ll show you My first try at making shoes 😊 Felted slippers for my son made of Merino wool and for the soles I've recycled/upcycled my old leather jacket.

My first felted scarf - Black and white merino wool scarf for men

Ta-da! My first felted scarf is here 😊 I made it for my hubby so that he can wear a fancy wool scarf with his fancy coat. The scarf is made of the softest black super fine merino wool (16,5 micron) with silk and viscose fibers for décor. It is two sided, one is solid black and one side is patterned.

Nature engagement ring Twig Ring with genuine Garnet Tree bark textured Pagan wedding band

I've been making a lot of nature inspired rings lately and I wanted to show my latest custom order engagement ring. The ring is hand-carved from Precious Metal Clay Sterling 960, tree bark textured, polished and in the middle I've set a genuine Garnet gemstone. The ring was inspired by my Frost ring so I photographed them together to show you the likeness and the difference :)

Wet felting my first felted creation - Black and White Merino wool phone case.

I’ve been a huge fan of felting and particularly Nuno felting for over 10 years now so last month I’ve decided it was finally time to learn how to do it! I’ve bought a series of educational videos from a talented felt designer @lenabaymut_felt and my felting journey has begun... so far I’ve been making test pieces with different techniques but I thought I will show you my first “real” felt creation. I needed a new iPhone case for my phone so it was a perfect opportunity to try and felt it 😊 it’s made of black merino wool, decorated with white viscose fibers and on the back I’ve made a pocket for credit cards and driving license.

Green gemstone flower ring Prasiolite Peridot wire wrapped sterling silver ring - Gemstone flower collection by Arctida


For the past couple of years I've been making jewelry using mostly metal clay and traditional silversmiths techniques but I haven't stopped with wire wrapping completely. It was the first technique that I've learned in jewelry making and it will always have a special place in my heart :)

So here is a another example of my wire wrapped creations. This one is a gorgeous Prasiolite (aka Green Amethyst) and Peridot gemstone flower attached to woven wire wrapped sterling silver base. The gemstone flower is one of my favorite designs and even though I’ve already done dozens variation (some examples of my Gemstone Flowers collection), I'm still surprised how different the flowers look with various gems. The woven ring base was made with a guidance of Gosia Domańska's wonderful ring tutorial.
