Finding inspiration in Nature:
Since childhood I’ve been fascinated by the beautiful & colourful patterns in Nature.
One aspect of Nature I find magical & which often inspires the embossed designs for my Silver jewellery is trees.
From the colourful Elm & Oak & trees around London where I spent part of my childhood, to bold & majestic Australian Gums, each tree species has their own characteristic form, bark texture, leaf shape & colour.
The tree trunk images below were taken at various Parks in & around Maitland NSW & demonstrate just how unique each tree is in terms of it’s texture, colour & surface detail.
I love the natural colouring, wrinkled, crackled textured bark & the play of light on the trees’ surface.
My interest in Nature & fascination with trees is reflected in the types of patterns I choose to emboss into my Silver work.
Do you find any aspects of Nature inspiring?
