I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent quite a lot of time this week, deliberating whether or not to go out into the garden. The sun has been shining (hurray!) but it has been incredibly cold. Any attempts to enjoy a cup of tea in the outdoors have sent me scuttling pretty quickly into the warmth of the kitchen and the view out of the window instead.
There’s something about the sun shining that has me reaching for the seed packets, houseplants or anything else that links me to nature. So lucky then, that the lovely designers at R.A. Fourt Jewelry Co. sent me the most beautiful earrings to have a look at.
All inspired by nature and the outdoors!
These particular earrings are made from maple, walnut, ebony and mahogany wood before being adorned with small pieces of tumbled coral. Aren’t they amazing? I am IN LOVE! I adore how the different sections of wood come together to create a striking pattern.
Based in Madison, Wisconsin, the R.A.Fourt team use their surroundings to inspire their minimalistic jewellery range. You can take a peek at their other beautiful items on their Etsy shop, here.
The studs in the picture above, are made from walnut, mahogany and my absolute favourite – Zebrawood! They are so light and comfortable to wear and I get many admiring comments whenever I have them on.
Reece (the R. in R.A.Fourt!) spends much of his time, while not designing beautiful jewellery, making and repairing guitars so he’s pretty knowledgeable about working with natural materials and clearly has a real eye for striking design.
If you have time, I really recommend checking out the R.A.Fourt Facebook page, here. There are some beautiful slide shows of their jewellery, but be prepared to do some mega swooning!
Let me know your favourites! x
