If you've followed me over the years you know that I truly enjoy working with other artists and partnering with other creatives in my community. I've long been an admirer of Madalyn McLeod's illustrations. We were both in the art and design program at East Carolina University years ago and I've been following her journey as a budding artists and finally I reached out to her to create a fantastic autumn gift package.
And it was so timely that I recently created a new ring from a tree branch (and perhaps more tree pieces to come). Thus I'm excited to release....on Samhain my our Autumn gift package! When you purchase the Dryad ring, a sterling silver ring with two orange topaz gemstones (2mm) which is $185 you get a signed print copy of the Queen of Autumn by Madalyn McLeod!
The Dryad ring came about from a special commission for two very good friends of mine who recently got married, they wanted rings that were nature inspired and to be honest, I've mostly stayed away from pieces that are cast from twigs, nuts or branches because I felt they were too 'done'. As in, popular however I've come around to the fact that whenever I create new pieces, they will always have my signature stamp and aesthetic. So I felt drawn to create more branch inspired pieces, plus I've been so consumed with growing my own herbs and truly connecting with herbalism and growing things.
They pair SO so perfectly, plus this is a great collectable piece and one that works well for your gallery wall or a gift for the holidays.
Mark your calendars - this beautiful combination will be released in one week, on Samhain - All Hallows Eve - Halloween.
Thank you for reading....stay posted friends!
