Regarding jewelry designing, my father asked me how much can you do with a ring? The answer is, quite a bit. Seattle based, jewelry artist, Sarah Hood proves this. Her Landscape series uses sterling silver cast shapes of pods, roots and branches in conjunction with model railroad landscape materials, plastic branches and artificial grass. Combining the influences of man-made and nature. Her enthusiasm for gardening, botany, literature, children’s toys, eastern philosophy, and travel all make their way into her jewelry designs. Creating portable tiny gardens in the form of rings, necklaces and earrings whether in a glass tube or as a manicured tree accented with rocks, their scale is deceiving.
“For years I’ve been working within the intersection of archetypal form and the natural world, creating one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces from organic materials. In Landscape, I’ve taken a break from the real natural materials–leaves, pods, seeds–which have compelled my work for many years to create miniature, artificial worlds within the context of jewelry.”
Sarah Hood’s works of jewelry art captures the outdoors and the imagination.
Have an infinitely modern day!
