Art imitating Nature


I recently came across this quote about Art imitating Nature:


All Art is but Imitation of Nature – Lucius Seneca


My immediate reaction was if I can achieve this in my work I’ll be happy!

The image above shows Argentium Sterling Silver pieces that are finished & ready to be assembled into jewellery pieces.

After much experimentation with different texture techniques I found using real skeleton leaves was the only way to achieve the intricate leaf detail I striving for in the upcoming 2016 New Range.

While the embossing process is quite labour intensive I think the end result is worth it.

How about you?


Update: The Melanie Hay New Collection is out now & available in the online shop!
