Jewelry Inspired by Nature

Octopus Necklace
A few days ago I did an Artfire collection of nature inspired jewelry by the JCUIN guild.  There were so many interesting pieces, I thought I'd share a few more here.  You can click on the pictures for more into.

Above is a piece that I thought was really unique.  You don't usually see octopus jewelry.  This one is part of a set by Plethora of Jewelry.

Angel Fish Naval Ring

At right is another unusual piece.  An angelfish dangle belly button ring.  I thought it was so cute I had to include it here.  This is by one of our newer guild members, William or as he's better known, Dream Catcher Man.

Of course, if we're going to talk about jewelry inspired by nature, there's going to be at least one tree!  This handmade tree of life pendant is blue and copper, including a blue moon.  You can find it at Wagoner Wire Works.

Spiral Wire Wrapped Pendant Necklace, Simple Scroll With Alexandrite

This intricate wire-wrapped pendant, right, was inspired by the spiral of an ammonite according to Margaret of Boho Wire Wrapped.  Spirals are certainly a favorite of jewelry designers everywhere.  The bead in the center is an alexandrite, which changes color depending on the type of light.

Frog Pendant Fused Glass Green Yellow Handmade

A green frog jumping through the grass is definitely nature inspired.  This pendant is made from fused glass by Roxanne (me) of Shanghai Tai.

Crocheted Snowflake Ornament

Last, but certainly not least, when I saw this I knew I had to include it here.  Winter is almost here, and those of us who live up north will be seeing these soon, if we haven 't already.  This crocheted snowflake ornament isn't really jewelry, but sometimes we jewelry makers like to diversify a little.  It is made by Wyvern Designs.
