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.

Caraway Beads

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.
