These may be some of the most unusual bracelets and earrings I’ve found so far in my handmade hunting. They’re made by Lyuben Kostov, a craftsman based in the capital city of Bulgaria, Sofia. Lyuben is a contemporary artist and specializes in painting, kinetic installations, objects and photography. He loves to work with wood and it really shows in this amazing collection he calls Cool Natural Jewelry.
