Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. What? You haven’t noticed? Then, you should definitely should stop what you’re doing right now and enjoy a walk outside. Nature is a great source of inspiration. It may even provide a possible solution to that project you’ve been working on right now.
The Peltate necklace and earrings echo the way stems attach in lily pads and gingko leaves–from the center rather than the edge. Look closely and you see that the leaf’s veins radiate from the center and fork repeatedly to produce a tree-like pattern like so:

The Perlin necklace is composed of three leaves, each with a different pattern. The next time you’re out, take a second look at the leaves around you. They’re like fingerprints that never quite repeat.
Can you see how this leaf’s veins are different from the necklace’s?
