As soon as I saw Odile Gova’s gorgeous wool and zipper jewelry, I knew I had to share it. I see a lot of felt jewelry and recently a lot of zipper jewelry too, but I haven’t seen anything like these colorful and whimsical creations from Odile Gova. She designs under the label Woolly Fabulous and her jewelry is just that – woolly and fabulous. I love the trio of brooches shown above. They are clever, colorful, and each has little details that show artistry and they are just plain fun.
Odile is from Ontario, Canada and is the mother of two boys one of whom has juvenile diabetes. Her ability to produce such elaborate work in addition to the demands of a busy household are a testament to the wonders women work each and every day. Odile says her work keeps her grounded and sane. I know just looking at her pieces makes me smile.
I just had to share this sweet little red bird with you too. His rhinestone eye and tiny zipper feet are just precious. You can see more of Odile’s work on Flickr.
