Nature Around Your Neck

Each season of the year brings marvelous colors, and I never cease to be amazed at the beauty of them. Of course my paintings are influenced by those wonderful mixes of colors, but my jewelry is definitely inspired by them. I tend to work my beads, I suppose subconsciously, based on the hues of nature... and in this case, Mother knows best!

This week, I did some research, if you want to call it that. I went through many of my photographs and found that yes indeed... my jewelry tries to live up to the gorgeous colors in the natural world around me, the world that I so enjoy photographing as I hike, birdwatch, or tend the garden. So take a walk through the seasons and see some of the results. Jewelry title links you that piece in my Etsy shop or on my website.
