Artists and creative people get their inspiration from all over the place, but a lot of what influences people are things they see or experience in day to day life. Jewelry-maker Oksana Trukhan lives in a small city that’s surrounded by wild and ancient forests on all sides, so of course these picturesque surroundings have been an inspiration to her work. Trukhan creates insanely beautiful wire-wrapped jewelry that’s based on the gorgeous natural world around her. Check out these twelve stunning pieces of jewelry inspired by forests and nature, and see for yourself!
