Of NatureJewelry and Sculpture
It’s been a long time. But the website has been redone and updated. There are so many wonderful pieces that have been added. And now, I have added barrettes and sculptures! Have fun browsing.
What we do: I suppose it all started with our love of nature. Each of our pieces is created from actual leaves, which mostly come directly from our garden. Some come from hikes, some from friends. Each leaf is real and is encased in copper through a process called electroforming. When you purchase from our website you will receive the piece that is in the photograph, which is why the in-stock number is always “1”. It is a unique, singular piece of nature just for you. Notably, we never make impressions or use molds.
As many of you know 2020 has been a difficult year for artists. Most of us do art shows throughout the year where we get to meet lots of folks and sell our works. One by one shows were cancelled. I thought my fall schedule would materialize and I would get to see all of you. Some of my favorite shows occur in fall. But no. So, on a good note, I had a lot of time to redo the website. Enjoy.
Every particular in nature, a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole.
Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.
Henry David Thoreau
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

So what do artists do after the holiday shows are over? For most of us it is time to explore new ideas and to create new work. Most importantly, we create new pieces to have photographed by a professional who specifically does "jury shots". It is with these that we...
Lots of folks I meet when I am out at art fairs ask "Where do you find leaves". Well the simple answer is that I grow them in my gardens in my really-over-planted yard. Sometimes the conversation turns to hiking when I joke that some of my friends don't like walking...
The weather is definitely on the down side of summer. I just cam back from a camping trip and I did engage in some leaf collecting while I was out walking. One of my favorite places in Indiana, Turkey Run State Park, is beautiful in the fall. For those of you who...
