Palm Tree Inspiration

Yesterday while working in our atelier I noticed something funny in our view.

See that little shadow on the palm tree?

Zooming in closer you see that it is a reptile, enjoying the sun and view.

Coincidentally I was working on a necklace with palm tree bark. This is skeletonized bark, the palm tree's trunk is made with layers and layers of this, quite intriguing.

The necklace is made with two layers of beautiful glass with the bark sandwiched in between. I then copper foiled and soldered the layers together and patina'ed it black for extra deepness.

I've made some more of this kind of necklaces all with natural found objects so keep an eye out for more to come :) The first necklace is listed here.
