All items are handmade and are one of a kind from foraged wild and domesticated plants. I collect whatever is in season on my daily walks, usually in the Philadelphia area. The composition of my pieces range from traditional (using whole, pressed flowers and leaves) to more abstract. Each piece involves laying jewelry-grade resin in several layers, over several sittings.
7 by 7 inch white shadow box frame with real praying mantis, nandia leaves, oat grass seeds, andromeda flower buds, and hosta seed pods. The front is glass; the back is open. Praying mantis was my sister's pet and died a natural death. Everything in the piece is real and natural. Can be hung against a light colored wall or in a window with indirect light.
