Leave It To Me

These stunning silhouettes, created by paper cut artist Jenny Lee Fowler, are a fresh, new take on a classic heirloom. Based in Kingston, NY, Jenny cuts her custom portraits the old-fashioned way; freehand with close observation and a seriously sharp pair of scissors. Though her use of natural materials like leaves and bark is far from traditional (she mentions the leaves may "cure" with only slight shrinkage and color change over the years if kept pressed between the glass and out of the sun), her Etsy shop also features work made from more traditional black and colored paper, as well as some pretty pendants. Something like this could make a great Christmas gift for mom.
