Jewelry artist: Crystal Taggart


Artist: Crystal Taggart
Website: Crystal's Idyll


My formal education is in biology and I get most of my inspiration from nature. I find organic materials intriguing and mysterious; entire worlds can be found in the nacre of a pearl or within the depths of a chunk of amber.


Most of my jewelry is what I call natural fantasy. A visit to the beach fills me with dreams of naiads' crowns and sea monsters just waiting to be given form. And what better materials to use than those provided by nature. Pearls become butterfly wings, prehistoric amber a prehistoric spider.
