Have you seen the amazing metal work and jewelry of maria jauhiainen? I stumbled across it this weekend and oh my, what a nice discovery. The remarkable delicacy of her work is only surpassed by the beauty of the subject matter she's captured. From the skeletons of real leaves to the stylized depiction of the the structure of a ginko leaf, some of her pieces are very realistic, others illustrative and graphic. And the crafting itself is undeniably compelling. Wow. Such smart, modern beauty.
