Natures Jewels

These are the kinds of things that really inspire me to create natural jewellery.
Nature is the one place where I feel as though I fit in and belong.
Something about it really resinates within me, I am in awe of the raw beauty and perfection, or imperfection, of the natural world.
At times natural life is so beautiful that it hurts knowing what the human race is doing to it, and it all amounts to greed, capitalism, and consumption.
