Jewellery designer Abigail Percy guest blogged on Design*Sponge last week, and her posts are all themed around botanical design.
She’s pretty well-positioned to provide her perspective on the matter, too. Her own designs, which I have long coveted, are botanically-inspired — like her anemone earrings, above. (*Drool*)
Abigail says, “I love seeing just how many different ways the same plants can be stylised…from something very literal, to something really abstracted and vague – all stemming from the one source.” Her posts go on to explore the influence of the botanical on pattern design, ceramics and fabrics and more. Go check it out – it’s a guaranteed mood-enhancer for the botanically-deprived gardener!
