Something from Bonny Scotland

I was up in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival on the weekend, and came across a wee market. One stall that drew my attention featured the work of Aldona Juska - a Yorkshire lass of Lithuanian descent who is now based in Edinburgh. Aldona works with metals to create jewellery, sculpture and table art which is a little different from your standard bird bath or candelabra.

The piece that I liked the best at the market is a photo holder that could double as a place card holder for a reception dinner and a favour for guests.
There is also this low candelabra which i thought would look stunning as a centrepiece.

As well as some really unique jewellery, Aldona creates sculptures which would be equally at home in the garden or the living room. Wouldn't they make lovely gifts?
