Chili Crab Treasures

As ALWAYS when I see a designer with such talent and beautiful designs I HAD TO SHARE them with you!
Introducing Chili Crab!
Let's get to know her a little better.
DIrectly from her bio:

"I am a German expat happily living in Singapore with my husband and two sons. I really enjoy the freedom of being engaged with the things that I have been doing for more than 6 years now.

The biggest influence on me becoming a creative person definitely comes from my parents and my mother-in-law. My mother loved to do any kind of handcrafts, from knitting, crocheting to silk painting and sewing. She did everything. My father is talented with any kind of woodwork. And my mother-in-law is a great painter and artist in general.

But the decision to keep my fingers busy with other things than typing the keyboard in a software company came during my first pregnancy. I felt almost forced to create crochet treasures and made a lot of gifts for friends and family. After that my interest evolved into designing home accessories. Later I got interested in creating jewelry. Nowadays, I still maintain my interests in all these areas."

Now my favorite part!
Sharing with PICTURES!!!! Here are a few of my favorite piece from her shop!

for the aztec goddess-earrings
The vibrant colors against the richness of the brass is such a wonderful contrast!

Check out this pendant!
Such intricate detail! All of the delicious little petals and leaves...such work!
paradise by night-pendant

I always have found the image of a skeleton for the most part morbid and scary. Even though I know the history of the day of the dead...still creeps me out....UNTIL now! The bright festive colors and design of this piece really do make for something to celebrate!
dia de los muertos-pendant

Finally, my FAVORITE piece...or really pieces! I have ALWAYS loved the color combination of brown and blue. This set takes my love to a whole new level! For all the years running around with flowers in my hair these simply take my breath away. They have everything I LOVE. Flowers, detail, brass filigree, sparkle, sass and a sensational organic feel.
I actually get butterflies in my tummy looking at them. The amount of detail used to create these truly makes me believe she loves her craft!
cocoa dreams-earrings

I hope you all share my joy of these amazing treasures!
I highly recommend you to visit her shop and check out all her other AMAZING designs.
