Recently Fiona and I purchased a couple of pieces of work from the Etsy shop of Luthien a gifted maker from Malaysia.  We were very excited that they arrived in the mail on Thursday.

 Fiona and I are drawn to Luthien's work - Fiona because of the handmade journals and I because of the recycled nature of her work. The photos below show the travel journal I purchased for me and the earrings I purchased for Fiona.

The tiny books earrings are real works of art - Luthien has stained the paper in the mini books (about 15mm long);has hand sewn the pages; and has hand sewn a leather cover to the book. If you wanted you could write in these little journals.
