This is my entry for the
Nature Inspired Contest. It didn't place, but I received an honorable mention.
My inspiration for this piece came from this beautiful photo: [link]
It took a while, but after looking at the photo multiple times, and sketching many different designs, the inspiration finally sunk in, and the design you see in the photo above is the outcome
The piece is made out of sterling silver sheet and wire, with natural 2 - 2.5 mm sapphires. The oval pendant has a satin finish, and the silver wire is polished. I also polished the area where the waterfall flows over the oval base. I thought it gave it a wet, watery look. Don't you agree?
