Meet Emma Mitchell, the craft teacher, jewelry designer, writer, blogger, and just a creative person who inspires people with her love to plants. After checking out Silver Pebble’s site and Instagram, I’ve fallen in love with her beautiful nature-inspired jewelry and botanical photography. Now it’s your turn!
Using silver clay, Emma creates elegantly designed accurate copies of leaves, flowers, berries, and other nature details. These pieces of jewelry look like a work of art. What’s even more fascinating is the fact that Emma shares her knowledge and skills with other people. Visit one of Emma’s workshops and learn how to create such gorgeous nature-inspired jewelry.
Silver Pebble’s Instagram is full of gorgeous botanical illustrations. Using watercolors and ink, Emma creates simple yet beautiful drawings that help viewers appreciate the beauty of nature even more. Her works must be the source of inspiration and botanical knowledge for many people.
The first thing Emma takes inspiration from is her collection of postcards, botanical reference books, pebbles, and shells. As for the second thing, it’s nature in general. Collecting leaves in the garden, Emma then uses them for printing into silver.
One of the most difficult things in a life of every freelancer is the difficulty of dividing work and personal space. It’s so easy to get distracted by a number of things. Emma is a lucky artist who can run away from home and hide in a safe place – her shed. The shed is Emma’s inspirational place. It’s the place where she works, creates, and gets inspired by all those beautiful botanical collections. Lovely, right?
