Nature's Fleeting Artistry


Spiders have been hard at work, crafting elegant pendants adorned with dew drops, on the Harry Lauder's Walking Stick ( aka Corkscrew hazelnut aka Corylus avellana 'contorta.') 


I'd love to see what a talented jeweler, working with gold and silver and gems, could do with these designs.


Would a permanent creation be a pleasing as these ephemeral beauties, destined to vanish in the sun and wind?

That's a thick web!

I do not believe the designs would be as pleasing if they were permanent. We all gravitate to fleeting and elusive things. Love the photographs.

I love those little bugs. (Not crawling on me) Eight legged artists. The orb spider is my favorite

Good catch, and it looks like Ms. Spider hasn't had any luck herself. Love the walking stick plants!

Dear Vicki, when I saw that first photograph, I immediately began to imagine beautifully delicate jewelry that would evoke this natural beauty. One of my favorite designers who is inspired by nature is Ted Muehling. I am fortunate to have some of his earrings, and always yearn for more. And yet, nature is even more beautiful. xo
