: a good idea

Last week I came across the gorgeous work of Hemmerle, a fourth generation family run jewelry design house located in Munich, Germany. Each jewel is a true work of art, their work stopped me in my tracks and made me look twice. Not only did they inspire me to be a better designer but I was blown away by their creations and what inspired them.

Mother nature captured by the artist, these are true works of art and my Fall inspiration.
