Nicola Ginzel's transformation of everyday objects into works of art is simply stunning. Using embroidery thread, paint and even gold leaf, these used, mundane and often discarded objects are giving new, extraordinary life. From chopstick wrappers to stamps, and even used paper cups, it's some the most beautiful example of turning trash into treasure that I've ever seen.
