There are few things in life I like more than skulls and pugs so LadonbKokosan aka Alisa Neznamova is ticking all the boxes for me with these fantastic embroidered brooches. I tip my hat to anyone who can nail pieces like this, especially when the scale is so small. Can you believe these examples of Alisa’s work are palm sized?! The shading and intricacy are top notch. I’d proudly wear them both on my jacket.
If you are on Instagram you can also follow Alisa here to keep up to date with her stitching. Which one is your favourite?
