Nutmeg Earrings
I was looking through my laptop for artwork I've photographed and I stumbled on these. I made these for my Mom for Christmas out of nutmeg, flower seeds, and sterling silver findings. I sometimes adore tinkering with beautiful little things like jewelry. It's a nice way to get my creative quick fix. I enjoy the handmade quality as well, especially when it's paralleled with nature.

The markings on the nutmeg are so interesting once I sliced it in half and sanded the coating off. I noticed the texture the first time I grated fresh nutmeg with a microplane for apple crisp!

Above all, my Mom loved my experiment!
