Every spring I'm filled with inspiration and wonder when I see the delicate wildflowers of Klickitat and the Mid Columbia Gorge.
This Large-flowered collomia is a new one that I found on my daily walks in the valley. I'm sure it's been here all along but I simple hadn't noticed it. That's how it often is in our lives, there's beauty surrounding us if we could just look up from our worries and obsessions.
How can I bring this little inspiration into my handmade jewelry? Perhaps I will carve a new flower for my collection.
