I love jewellery inspired by nature – from elephant earrings to olive leaf necklaces, I want it all! I think it’s wonderful when artists and designers see the beauty of our natural world and strive to replicate it in fashion. Consumers fall in love with these bespoke pieces of jewellery and in turn, appreciate the beauty of nature in another form. It’s even better when the artists themselves are conscious about the environmental impacts of the fashion industry and strive for sustainable fashion. Elizabeth Terzza certainly ticks all of these boxes with her gorgeous hand crafted line of nature-inspired jewellery.
Each piece of Elizabeth Terzza’s jewellery is carefully hand-crafted in her Herefordshire studio. By using traditional goldsmith techniques, she creates stunning collections inspired by the British countryside. A personal favourite is the set of acorn studded earrings; they are delicate, understated and timeless. Whether it’s sycamore seeds or oak trees, olives vines or pines, she captures the beauty of nature perfectly with minimalist but striking pieces.
As more of us join the fashion revolution and become increasingly concerned about the environmental impacts of fast fashion, Elizabeth Terzza remains bang on trend. She uses recycled precious materials to create her pieces, preferring to re-work existing materials rather than contributing to further mining.
