The Yin & Yang of Bees and Gs

If the style of jewelry is an indicator of cultural trends, then Mother Nature is a popular muse.  She’s a natural at mixing colors and textures, and her influence is evident in free-form twists, organic shapes, and exquisite honeybee designs.  Maybe it’s the travel restrictions that have inspired a longing to venture out to an untamed destination and behold her beauty.  Perhaps it’s the urge to explore your most important priorities.

Feathered Friends

Birds influence human behavior in interesting ways.  Go-getters rise with the sun to catch the auspicious worm.  Snowbirds migrate to warmer climates to soak up the sun rather than bundle up in down coats.  Birdwatchers imitate the sounds of birds to attract their feathered friends to a nearby tree.  And determined teammates flock together because they’re all in it together.
