Trend Spotting: Botanical Jewelry


Each month I’ll share a current trend I’m seeing in floral design, or a new passion I have with materials and pieces that inspire me.

Botanical jewelry is very hot right now and inquiries for my work in this have grown. It was 5 years ago that I started to make botanical jewelry and all because a student asked to see the mechanics on how to make a ring. Talk about being put on the spot! I figured it out and the rest is history.

Curiosity drove me to start designing earrings, necklaces and bracelets too. As I love details so much I like to piece together deconstructed flowers, tillandsias, succulents and textures along with sedums, tendrils and berries. Depending on the materials that are used, this jewelry will last 1 day up to several weeks.

If you are interested in this exciting floral trend, check out my upcoming workshops schedule, my online jewelry courses or contact me for private instruction and editorial design.
