The UK is the home of tens of thousands of Czech people. Amongst them is a group of amazingly talented Czech (or rather Czechoslovak) ladies that I know from a group on Facebook. They call themselves Šikulky, which loosely translates as Handy girls 🙂 And handy they are! Below is a display of their fabulous handiwork.
Iva makes wonderful crocheted blankets and throws but also beautiful jewellery, all of which you can buy through her Facebook shop Kiwik Shop.
Klára is a Czech lady living Scotland. She is an amazing photographer and one of those unique people who can see beauty in seemingly ordinary things. She’s a photographer who can make a feather caught in brambles look special… What’s more, she will then make a pair of earrings inspired by that feather! She is just unbelievable…and her handmade jewellery, which she makes from Czech glass, is absolutely stunning! Have a look at her website or Facebook page Caraway Beads and judge for yourselves.
These beautiful felt decorations are hand made by Jitka. Check out he Facebook page Jitaky Felt for more cuties.
Cute crocheted hats and bonnets for babies, children and adults made by Ludmila. You can choose from lots more on her Facebook page Crochet Hats for Babies and Children. I bought one for myself for the winter and it’s absolutely fab 🙂
Beautiful and stylish things made by Zuzana. Have a look at more in her Facebook shop ZuZi.
Katarina makes amazing decorations from ribbons. They’re absolutely stunning and I’m sure they must take hours! You can find many more on her Facebook page Ribbonlicious.

Iveta loves crocheting and you must admit that she is pretty brilliant at it 🙂 It’s all for sale in her Handy Hooks shop on Facebook.
