Growing is Forever

Inspirada en aquest magnífic video de Jesse Rosten, sobre el creixement, les plantes i la naturalesa, he creat una selecció de joies amb plantes. Espero que us agradin i sobretot gaudiu d’aquest video, a mi se’m posa la pell de gallina cada cop que el veig.

Inspired by this amazing video made by Jesse Rosten, talking about growing, plants and nature, I have created a selection of jewelry with plants. I hope you like them and you can enjoy this video that puts me goosebumps every time I see it.

Aquesta noia de Carbondale (Colorado) s’inspira en les formes de la naturalesa per fer les seves col·leccions, des d’anells amb pedres de riu fins a arracades amb espigues vegetals. No us perdeu la resta de la seva feina al seu bloc, web o botiga on-line.

This girl from Carbondale (Colorado) is inspired by the nature shapes to make her collections, from rings river rocks  to earrings with plant leaves. Don’t miss the rest of her work on her blog, website or online store.

M’agraden les noves peces de la Catherine, inspirades en les flors i les plantes. Les podeu trobar a la venta a la seva botiga on-line.

I love these new creations from Catherine, inspired in flowers and plants. You can find them at her online store.

“I have been working on a new production line in the past couple months, and wanted to share with you a couple new pieces. These are fairly time consuming to make, at least to start. This new production line revolves around representations of endangered plant species. I am starting local and concentrating on endangered plants in the Northwestern U.S., and will eventually expand my coverage. It requires hours of research, sketching, refining, scanning images into the computer, more refining, resizing (I try to match the size of the actual plant), printing….etc. etc. etc.

With all that work, I am really excited about these first couple of pieces. So far, they are only earrings, but I fully intend to expand into necklaces as well, and perhaps bracelets if the design allows for it.”

Fa temps que segueixo la feina d’aquestes joieres de València i realment m’encanten les seves joies. Animals, flors, vegetals i tota mena d’èssers de l’imaginari es troben a les seves col·leccions, fetes amb una gran originalitat i maestria. Podeu veure altres projectes i peces al seu Flickr. Genials!

Their jewels are made with a great originality and maestry. To see more projects you can visit their Flickr. Wonderful!

Impressionant les joies d’aquesta artista americana…formes orgàniques de fulles, plantes i altres elements de la naturalesa. La seva peça estrella és la “Tiara” que ella mateixa ens decriu com al corona de la sabiduria. Us deixo el seu propi escrit, és molt bó!!

“The Tiara of Useful Knowledge focuses on the Importance of plants. It is inspired by The American Philosophical Society’s charter [1743] “for Promoting Useful Knowledge,” and The Academy of Natural Science’s [1812] goal of “connecting people to nature.” It consists of portraits of 10 plants, an ant, and a pebble, made from oxidized sterling silver, 18K and 14K gold, and quartz. The Tiara transforms into 12 pieces of jewelry that can each be worn separately.

Tiaras are rooted in the ancient Greek practice of placing laurels upon the heads of victors, and grew into an icon of British royalty. My American version is modeled after plants in the vacant lots near my studio and home. I just assumed they were unique to the USA until I read about Invasive Species and Aliens replacing Natives. Many Natives are now described as Rare, Threatened, Endangered, Vulnerable, Extinct or – Extirpated, while others are labeled Nuisance, Noxious, or – Worst!”
