Nature is rich in hidden treasures: the nibbled on leaf on the bush, the wondrous seed capsule on the ground, the graceful poppy by the side of the road Unique natural materials play the leading role in this book, they undergo a fascinating transformation and become charming objects that deserve to be in the spotlight. Combined with origami paper or decorated with gold highlights they turn into astonishing jewellery, delicate little objects of art, and heart-warming gifts. The fragile little objects are stylish, playful, and elegant, and nothing like the rustic fir cone decorations of childhood days. Embossed gift-wrapping paper or fragile mobiles, delicate earrings or floral door curtains. With detailed instructions for each project and guidelines on the most common techniques for gold coating, origami, as well as for flower and leaf collection and pressing. A declaration of love to the beauty of small things and the abundance of nature. Ruth Cortinas Born in Monterrey, Mexico, since 2014 freelance illustrator.
