Folksy Friday, A touch of Art Deco

Good Afternoon all, for this week's Folksy Friday I have chosen the theme of Art Deco. I have recently discovered some fabrics in this theme and taken an interest - so took a look around Folksy and found some wonderful treasures in this theme, here are just a few I have chosen to show you. To see all these items in further detail and the other lovelies in the shops simply click the picture to be taken to the individual shop.

Starting with "Silk Purse, Sow's ear" and this fabulous ring

Next is "Milliebead" often featured here on my blog, as just so much variety to choose from in her shop

I struggled to choose a card in this shop, so many great ones to choose from, here is "Cards with a Difference"

A Stained Glass Art Deco panel from "Amy Orange Juice"

Hand crafted beret from the talented "Imogen's Imagination"

Vintage Travel Necklace from "Kitsch Kitten"

..and finally from here at Bags of Swank by SimjaTa a shoulder bag featuring Art Deco music notes, the second in the Art Deco collection (first was sold) and another to appear later next week, with Art Nouvaux Swans.

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks choices, these are just some of my favourites, there are many more Art Deco theme crafts on Folksy, which is of course simply the best on-line shopping experience.

Have a great weekend.
