cathead

This frighteningly realistic cat head was created by a teacher named Housetu Sato and his students at the Japan School of Wool Art. The wearable feline face is made through a process called needle felting which normally produces adorable miniatures, but since this class is actually only school in the world that offers the specialist cat-making curriculum, they decided to go bigger.

Secure in this medium, Sato published a series of books on how to make realistic felt animals. Check out his students modeling their works of art after the break.

Wearable_05

Artist Colleen Jordan of Wearable Planter believes:

“The world would be a happier place if people appreciated nature a little more, and were willing to carry a plant close to their heart from time to time.”

Each planter is 3D printed using nylon then dyed in an array of vibrant color options. The planters are also sealed with acrylic varnish for protection. These brilliant designs can be worn as necklaces, rings, or even as accessories for your bike—and all have a flat bottom surface to decorate your table or desk while not being worn.

game-of-thrones-necklace

Etsy shop owner BijouxMalou‘s passion for the forgotten art of letter writing collides with HBO’s Game of Thrones in this unique wax seal-style jewelry. Instead of wax, she uses mixes of polymer clay and stamps them to recreate a house seal. As you might expect, no two pendants are alike.

“In my jewellery making and design process I constantly strive for originality and perfection. I want to make something that is not existing on Etsy yet and has a perfect finish. With cosplay items I strive for a very close resemblance to the original items, to make the phrase ‘you could be anything’ become a truth.”

Her shop offers other imaginative Game of Thrones jewelry. Take a look after the break.
