I’ve seen some pretty kitschy perler bead art in my day, but the work of Camilla Drejer Andersen is far from it! Put these little plastic beads into the hands of an amazing graphic designer and you get beautiful contemporary artwork.

When I spotted these designs I was so pleased to see this typical kids’ craft material being used in such an interesting way.

I just love these little birdies.

Camilla has really got this art form down. Check out some more of her original designs on her blog.
