At the recent Minneapolis Home & Garden Show, I stopped by a booth that caught my eye and met Gordon and Sandy James. They own Of Nature and create jewelry and sculptures from natural objects. These handcrafted pieces include pins, earrings, barrettes, sculptures, trinket boxes/containers, and pendants.
Each item consists of an actual piece of nature covered in copper. None of the pieces are mass produced or made from impressions or molds. Each piece is carefully handcrafted, resulting in a unique piece every time.
The pieces are absolutely beautiful! And the pictures online, while wonderful, don’t do them justice. 🙂 Sandy and Gordon display their works at garden shows, art fairs and expos. If you don’t catch them in person, you can see and buy these one-of-a-kind pieces on their site or on their Etsy shop. I particularly love the barrettes!
Find out much more about how Sandy creates these works of art by visiting her shop on Etsy.
