Botanical arts feature jewelry that fools the eye

Botanical arts pieces must be made entirely from organic elements, although they may be treated with color or other procedures Award-winning botanical-arts artisan Sarah Boynton of Hingham, Massachusetts, finds her raw materials just about everywhere she goes. "I'm gathering materials all the time," she said "Hiking with my dog, I might see a cool mushroom and gather it.

You start looking at things, at the details — the dogwood flowers, for instance, that have a tiny piece of something I could use for jewelry or pokeweed for spacers It's an ongoing project." Boynton's unusual work is highlighted this year at the Newport Flower Show in a special exhibit in Rosecliff's large dining room She is a World Flower Show winner several times over, with numerous Artisan and Best of Show awards, as well as several first-place awards from previous Newport Flower Shows It was the 2011 Newport Flower Show that jump-started her botanical.
