Kim, owner of the Sim Pearls forum, made a gorgeous rug mesh, that we were all able to use for our August Recolor It contest. While we can’t show our recolors just yet (after all, it is sill August), I decided to go ahead and make a few nature based recolors. 2 wood cuts and 2 leaves. By the way, these are made from real rugs, so what you see in game, is what they would look like on a real floor (sans any pixelation LOL).



Beautifully Painted Wood Statement Jewelry 

Baku Forest Studios run by designer Fran is an Etsy shop which handcrafts stunning illustrated wood and acrylic statement jewellery. The studio specializes in creating pendants and necklaces that are inspired by nature and wildlife, and have a series of decorative and colorful marine creatures and birds. 

Transforming two-dimensional paintings and fragments of her imagination into handcrafted jewellery is the secret passion behind making the alluring accessories.  Using laser cut wood and acrylic, her illustrated necklaces bring an intimate touch of an artist, and each design has been conceived from a deep love for the delight which nature brings to people. An element of folklore can be seen in her work, and bold colors and detailed paintwork are consistent themes. The pieces are unique, and while most  jewellery tends to lean towards fashionable or casual trends, this special series highlights an artist’s passion and handiwork. Find them in their Etsy shop.
