alex malex designs

i recently got some lovely presents from a long time photographer friend of mine,who also designs jewelry and knitwear - aleksandra patova of AlexMalexDesigns.
 i wanted to do a post about them as they are really great and as I've been playing with the first batch of presents and have just received the second i thought i'd do a post about them and her lovely work.
for a long time i was looking for some good etched metal to use in my work - but nothing grabbed me enough apart from some very old bits of other things i'd found - the problem with those is that when they're gone ... well thats it.
then i saw that alex was making them and i pounced.
so these are the first batch she sent me that i have been having a lot of fun with, and will be posting some previews in another post of that fun

these came in the post today, i asked alex if she would make me some hamsa hands for me to use, and am thrilled with these - and while i was on the subject of hands, i grabbed the number hands from her shop.

and here is some more stuff from her shop

 and also some of her own jewelry using etched copper and brass
