This beautiful dried flower wreath was inspired by the fading colours of summer and seeds heads gently swaying in the wind. Perfect for bringing a glow to your walls as the sun sinks lower in the sky.

It's made by Bex Partridge and you can find it here > http://bit.ly/2yXbHl0

If you like watching people doing clever things with pencils, paint and ink, tune into Sky Arts tonight at 8pm for Series 3 of Landscape Artist of the Year.

In the words of presenter Frank Skinner: “Nothing in television quite equals the magic of giving a whole lot of very talented people a blank canvas at the start of the day, and watching them create something stunning by the end of it."

This year the prize is a trip to Jamaica to paint the view from Noël Coward's home, Firefly, and there are some amazing views to capture on the way there. You can catch up on catch up too :)

If you're a jeweller, you might know what lampworking is, but if not, it's a technique used to make glass beads where a torch is used to melt the glass and form the beads. It's a process that our featured maker Joanne Joyce fell in love with after her first lesson at the flame, and it's how she made this fabulous fox bracelet.

You can read Jo's story in our new Meet the Maker interview

Surely there's a name for someone obsessed by cacti and succulents? Cactophile maybe? Or Cactoholic? Anyway, if that's you, don't miss our interview with printmaker and fellow lover of green spiky and drought-tolerant things, Kerry Day.

Kerry's got a special offer on all her prints this week too. Find out more and read our Meet the Maker interview here > http://bit.ly/2yNnu1l
