Ocean Inspired Art Jewelry by Cheryl-Eve-Acosta

By on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 3 Comments

It's one thing to be inspired by nature. It's another to translate that into striking art jewelry. Kansas based artist, Cheryl Eve Acosta, does just that with her Hidden in Nature collection.


Although she makes other innovative designs, this ocean inspired collection speaks volumes about her early interest in marine biology in her native Puerto Rico.



Many of her pieces do evoke images of coral species undulating in gentle ocean currents, floating jellyfish or clusters of barnacles. Barnacles are one of nature's more mundane creatures but they look beautiful when featured in her lovely designs.  She uses copper, enamel and organza.

"Revealing"
Cheryl said, "I highlight both the impermanence and fragility of endangered natural forms in the dying ecosystem with the delicateness of my work. Making wearable art grounds me with a sense of self, reconnecting me to the place I call home and the life I long to protect."

"Withering Bloom"
