A few months ago, I explored the adorable diorama jewelry of Isabell Kiefhaber. Today, diorama jewelry is back, but with a very different mood.
Canadian jeweler Secret Wood combines ordinary materials – wood, resin and beeswax, to be precise – to create mysterious, miniature forests, seascapes, and other fantastical landscapes. They’re so magical-looking, I feel like if you could get close enough, you’d find fairies and mermaids and other wee folk in there…
The modern, beveled ring shapes add to their mystery and appeal, and their $100-$200 price tag keeps them reasonably within reach, especially when you consider that they’re handmade and one-of-a-kind!
