Allowing our minds to escape into fantasy can be entertaining, distracting, frightening, or even arousing. That escape into our inner world allows us to rehearse the future and imagine new adventures without risk. Thus, it allows the mind to roam freely and aid creativity.
So when you want to escape, where do you go? Have you ever dreamt about visiting a magical forest? If so, you’ll love these fantastical jewellery designs. Created by Florida-based artist Cheryl Lee, these nature-inspired accessories instantly make you think of fairies and gnomes.
Bringing the magical forest to life
To design her pieces, Cheryl combines clay and other natural elements—like seashells and crystals—into beautiful magical forest inspired jewellery.
“The process of creation is what is special to me, while the outcome is special to you. What is this world if not a symbiotic relationship, not only to earth and sea but to you and me” says the artist.
When Cheryl travels, she collects objects that she feels a connection with. That connections can be anything from a specific beach, mountain hike, reef dive, or forest stroll. And by creating her one-of-a kind works of art out of these objects, it keeps those memories alive.
