Artist Creates Foraged Pieces in Delicately Laser-Cut Wooden Pendants

Chicago based artist Erin LaRocque calls herself a “nature jeweler” who’s inspired by Michigan’s Hiawatha National Forest. Using scavenged materials from this ecological location, the designer encapsulates her found, natural reserves in resin and laser-cut wood frames, before polishing the pieces to give them a bright shine. Lush plants, moss, lichen, and wonderfully textured seeds are just a few of the often overlooked specimens that are included in LaRocque’s jewelry.
