"Growing up and Around"

Nona Bushman's avatar Nona Bushman

My 2013 Art prize entry, "Growing Up and Around" is a circular, slightly domed, pendant neck piece with matching earrings. The stone set in the pendant is a Plume Agate. The shapes seen in the agate are representational of rock formations, trees and clouds. This artwork symbolizes part of God's Creation. This abstract landscape suggests the beauty perceived from an aerial view of a walk through nature. The support system and base of this jewelry set have been constructed using sterling silver sheet metal and wire. The abstract forms found in nature, depicted in various textures, are cut out of brass, copper and silver.
