Nature Inspired Jewelry Pieces

1. Moss Necklace

Who says moss is limited to decor alone? The fantastic Mr. Lentz has created a new way for moss to steal the show as a jewelry embellishment. This moss necklace is one of our favorite finds to date.

And here’s a sneak peek of other pieces he’s created, aptly named ‘plant jewelry':

2. Silver Carved Rock Stud Earrings

Next up: rock stud earrings. Crafted with love by the inspiring Andrea Bonelli, these new pebble earrings are a favorite of ours from her new collection. These earrings are hand-carved from wax and made to resemble the facets of rock. In case you’re wondering, they’ve also been hollowed out in the back to reduce weight (so you can wear ‘em everyday). See ‘em in silver…

Who says twigs have no role in the fashion world? Kristin Coffin turned an everyday twig into a daily fashion statement with these twig stud earrings. These real twigs are cast in solid recycled 14k gold.

4. Twig Engagement Ring

If you’re hoping for a nature inspired engagement ring, we’ve found it! Have you considered a twig engagement ring? Check out this lovely one made by Barbara Nichelle Jacobs, whose love for nature inspired jewelry is reflected in nearly all of her pieces. This particular ring is one of my favorites: it is made of 100% recycled gold and is cast from real branches, formed into golden rings, and accented with a white diamond. Gorgeous.

5. Leaf Bracelet

You’ve seen leaf bracelets in the past, but this one is a favorite of ours for two reasons. First, it’s a pretty accent for your wedding day (especially with the addition of pearls) but it also works well for everyday wear, too. It’s handmade by the lovely ladies of Rustic Gem Jewelry and is our favorite from their collection.

    Those are some lovely pieces. Some of them look very similar to what I want for my white wedding. Other pieces I know I would want to use in my Viking Wedding, even if they aren’t quite authentic.
