one day when i was doing my internship at the heidi lowe gallery, heidi came home with an amazing photography book, treasures from the kingdom of fungi. the book is full of images of beautiful mushrooms and we decided that they are kind of like nature's jewelry for whatever they are growing on. yes, i know that sounds totally cheesy, but if you think about it, it is also totally true.
my jewelry inspiration of this week is eun yeong jeong's mushroom series. when i first saw this work i actually thought that it was ephemeral jewelry made from real mushrooms. it wasn't until i read the description of materials, that i looked closer and realized that they are hand fabricated. her transformation of metal into soft natural forms is flawless.
i hope you find these images inspiring.
