The Art of the Jewel

This is the stunning work of jewelry artist Kara Hamilton. She uses pieces from the natural world, and mixes them with metals. The look she creates is absolutely gorgeous. This piece is my favorite. It includes sterling silver, a beautiful pink shell, and deer fur. it is titled "Diplomacy" 2009.

"Monarch Jubilee", 2008. These pieces are something I would put under a glass dome in my house and use as a major statement piece.

"Pink Orient" 2009. I love how these pieces can be delicate, and yet fiercely bold at the same time.

" Crown for Prince Mighel Angel", 2008.
" Specimen Necklaces", 2008.
