Some people like to express thought makeup,
some through hair color, some through meticulously chosen outfits or
fun prints on their clothes, but since minimalism has been in trend
many are choosing to express their individuality through well-picked
accessories. That might be a hat, a fun pair of shoes or perhaps a
handbag, but what about brooches? Have you considered this option?
It’s just a small detail but it can completely transform your
outfit and show off your unique tastes and interests. Brooches used
to be such a popular accessory in the past and it looks like they’re
coming back, but in a transformed, modern way that is able to fit in
with your style.
There are many different kinds of brooches out there to choose from but today we want to talk about brooches made by a Russian artist that goes by the name Fistashka.Art on Instagram. She has a truly unique style and generally makes embroidery or beaded brooches. Both kinds are generally quite colorful and incredibly detailed. They look almost as mini paintings that you can wear as an accessory. These are available for purchase on Etsy, so if you’re interested – you can find a link to the store in her Instagram bio. In the meantime, here are our favourite brooches that Fistashka.Art has made so far.
