Today I want you to meet Samantha, a designer who loves plants and has turned this love into a business. Samantha creates gorgeous plant-inspired enamel pins and minimalistic Himmeli mobile decorations. At Handmade Sam*Made, you may also find a bunch of beautiful air plants. Together with Himmeli, they add the needed atmosphere to any interior.
I have always believed that in order to truly understand a craft, you must not only learn the details – the materials, the inspiration, but also the history and the process of making. It is only then that you can truly appreciate the beauty of the object that you are holding. My goal is to continue to learn, and to explore new mediums and cultures.
Many people adore this 2016 trend – wearing patches and badges sewn on clothes becomes fashionable. Though some don’t like this idea and prefer wearing brooches and pins. This is a perfect option for everyone who quickly gets bored by wearing the same clothes. With a pin, getting ready becomes funnier and more interesting. Put something on and choose the pin that suits your mood.
Pins created by Samantha look lovely. Looking at the original illustrations and the quality of high-fired enamel, I want to buy all of them. I must be the plant lady!
You’ll love Himmeli if you’re a fan of complex, geometric shapes. Samantha has taken the idea of traditional Finnish ornament and added some modern feel to it. These are mobile decorations that may also be used as planters for air plants. In one of the interviews, Samantha states that she loves air plants because they are easy to take care of. Besides, being natural and bright, they look great with Himmeli.
