Beavers :: Castores

Creatureshire is welcoming a new critter! They have already started building dams in the rivers and seem to be really delighted by the young willows that grow by the water. Beavers are truly amazing animals, with the capacity to change their environment in a way that actually makes room for other species to thrive. Aside…

Sea Urchins :: Ouriços do Mar

The sea urchins earrings are a new series from the Sea Creatures collection. I was inspired by their delicate patterned shells and by their habitat, kelp forests. Kelp forests are mostly located in the shallow waters of temperate coastal areas, like Europe, and they provide shelter to many species including sea urchins, star fish, snails,…

Hawaiian Penguins :: Pinguins Havaianos

The Hawaiian penguins are back! It’s starting to feel like Summer and I couldn’t resist to play with these earrings: they came out dressed in fresh colors and are ready for the Summer holidays.

These koalas are the latest addition to the creatures of the world series inspired by wildlife from around the planet. Koalas are Australian marsupials who…

Rainbow Snails :: Caracóis Arco-Íris

The beginning of Spring makes me long for sunny days, warmth, ice cream and bright colours. These rainbow snails have been in my head for a while and they finally came alive, just in time for the beginning of Spring. Do you like them? They are available here. — O início da Primavera faz-me pensar…

Zygaena Lonicerae

For this month’s project I have chosen a moth that I found during my explorations on Flickr. I tend to wander through nature photos looking at landscapes, plants and flowers and of course, all sorts of creatures. I am surprised not only by the subjects but I also admire the skills of the photographers, who…
