Garden inspiration from Vee

Veruschka Stevens' bounty necklace from polymer clay

Veruschka Stevens was moved to created this wearable polymer garden after watching Michele Obama on tv gardening and surrounded by children.

“This necklace is very much inspired by the gorgeous garden in the White House and the wonderful health and joy that a garden – no matter how small or large – can bring into everyone’s heart, mind and body,” she explained. Here’s a collage of her inspiration and her results.

                    Ronna: Days like today and wonderful people like you (especially of your artistic caliber!), remind me that genuine goodness is very much alive and well in people’s hearts. I’m SO happy you find my pieces worth your -and everyone’s- precious time.

                      I agree with Ronna! I just saw many of her photos on Flickr, and had to pry myself away. How very inspiring indeed. I’m so glad you made us aware of this exceptional artist, Cynthia!
