Sweet Nature, but not from the source.
Not quite the misty morning that inspired this brooch, but a fitting place to photograph the result.
Knarled branches, overlapping, intersecting and framed against the diffuse light of the early morning was the inspiration for this collection. It was actually in England, just outside Henley on Thames, where strange mists frame the landscape in a beautiful fashion, that the original photograph was taken. It wasn't until several years later that I spotted the potential of those sharp black lines accentuated against the hazy light of the morning.
In this case translated into a brooch. Oxidised silver, hand sawn, with a white pearl.
