art honoring nature
“Art connects us to various aspects of our lives. I design jewelry as a connection to the profound beauty of plants and animals in our world. Preservation of nature and its inhabitants drives my creativity.”
Handmade by artist Marisa Cawthorne, these pieces feature sterling silver, fine silver, bronze, copper and natural stones.
“I create art to honor nature with its magnificent animals, plants and minerals. While holding a stone in my hand it speaks to my soul. My creations come from the harmony that I feel with nature. Each unique piece resonates with my connection to the environment.”
Every piece is handmade and one of a kind. I examine a stone meticulously and imagine what it might be best paired with; depending on shape and color. If it looks like a glacier chunk of ice, I imagine a whale or polar bear; a red stone perhaps an igneous frog, a brown stone home for a bird.
