Is it true that jewelry making and design is inspired by nature? HMMMM! Are there lessons to be learned from nature when designing jewelry. While sitting at the beach enjoying the Florida weather it became clear to me how nature varies color. In California the water is a deep blue-green while in Florida the water is that beautiful turquoise- so soothing…color.
My mind automatically goes to the thought that nature inspired jewelry making design. Of course it is true…color.
Just go to http://flnps.org/color-nature, it is eye opening.
Thinking about this brought to mind gem and mineral colors- aquamarine, turquoise and the rainbow of colors in nature.
Nature inspired jewelry making design – the varying colors in the sky, the sun and it’s vast array of colors from day break to

- lavenders (amethyst and tourmaline)
- so many colors.
Everyday we learn lessons from nature. Jewelry designing is inspired by nature because it never fails to astound with its bounty of beautiful gifts.
I really begin thinking about the phrase “jewelry designing is inspired by nature”.
The deserts, the mountains, the snow, the storms…all contribute to jewelry designing with color. Think about the hidden treasures that are un earthed each day.
