Seedpod: Botanical Inspiration on Etsy

Handpicked on Etsy
Our natural world is an unending source of inspiration for artists. Today's focus is the fascinating seedpod that carries and disperses life around our planet, in lovely little parcels encasing the seeds of future flora, fruits and legumes. In my own studio I've been creating bead-woven fantasy seedpod pendants, and wanted to see what other Etsy artists do with this botanical subject. We often overlook the seedpod's significance and aesthetic qualities as we munch our peas. Today's featured artists remind us of their visual and metaphorical beauty, using their chosen medium to create objects that delight the eye and adorn the body. Click on the pictures to go directly to these Etsy listings. Prices range from $13.00 to $115.00.
