The Notes of Nature Collection
When I go for my walk in nature each day, I am always struck by the symphony of wild noises I hear in the fields and forests. The music of nature is one of the most beautiful and calming things in the world. From the chirping of birds to the rustling of leaves, nature produces an array of sounds that can be both soothing and invigorating. In this article, I wanted to share some of my favorite nature sounds and how they have influenced my new Notes of Nature collection. Here is a bit more about my inspiration and a few pieces I have recently added to the shop.
About The Collection
As someone who loves both music and nature, I am always on the lookout for unique and beautiful ways to combine these two passions. Recently, the idea of music jewelry inspired by nature came to me on a walk through the nearby Birmingham Hill Preserve. I could hear birds singing, animals clambering through dried leaves, and the wind gently whistling through the branches of trees. I was immediately struck by the potential for intricate and delicate sound-inspired designs that capture the beauty of nature. The jewelry I have created features musical symbols crafted in some of nature's most striking metals. My hope is that wearers will feel a deep connection to both the beauty of nature and the power of music when they don jewelry from this collection. These pieces are designed to serve as a reminder of the importance of embracing creativity and finding inspiration in the world around us.
Each piece offers an elegant, music-inspired design.
