For some makers, nature brings the kind of inspiration that can’t be found anywhere else. There is so much in the natural world to derive motivation from, and some of our makers here at ACA have done just that. Whether you are looking for gorgeous accessories, drinks to improve your general wellness, or creative housewares, there are plenty of products here inspired by and made from nature!
Gorgeous Seaglass Jewellery
Seaglass is both beautiful and understated, making it a perfect jewllery choice for those who prefer a minimalist yet elegant style. Kriket Broadhurst Jewellery has a collection that features many different pieces made from seaglass of myriad colours, semi-precious stones, 14k gold, and sterling silver. Every piece is handcrafted with exquisite attention to detail, making them the perfect choice for formal, semi-formal, or everyday casual wear.
Wellness Teas to Soothe Your Body and Soul
Loose leaf teas have long been renowned for their ability to improve mental and physical wellness, undoubtedly due to the bevy of natural ingredients used in them. Denise Harvey of Inspired Health by Dee is a strong believer in not only the benefits of these teas, but in the process of brewing them. Making loose leaf tea injects a measure of peace into the lives of people who are constantly on the go and stressed about the day-to-day. Denise’s teas are all created to give people not only the benefits of the all-organic ingredients, but also help people find a bit of peace in the whirlwind of their daily lives.
Soft, Comfy, Exquisite Wool Creations
Love Merino’s products are 100 percent Australian and are the result of one family’s hard work, dedication, and love. The wool comes from a farm that has been operated for generations by the same family, and is of the highest quality. The products offered by Love Merino are all handcrafted and range in style from pashminas to scarves to neckwarmers. You’ll find a wide selection of colours and patterns to choose from, ensuring you’ll have something to wear no matter the occasion.
Palm Frond and Flower Housewares
Putting a twist on rustic decor, the Palm Art Boutique offers a wide range of home decor items, all handcrafted from palm fronds and inflorescences. The palm parts used in these products were destined for recycling but were instead taken and turned into some very unique pieces. Because palm fronds and flowers all have different textures, each piece designed by the Palm Art Boutique is entirely distinctive from the rest. If you are looking for a pastoral coastal feel in your home, these works of art are definitely something to consider!
From Nature, For You
Nature inspires makers in many different ways, as you can see. Each and every item crafted by these artisans is meant to inspire you in turn and impart a sense of the natural world when you wear, look at, or taste them. It’s so easy to overlook nature when we get caught up in our lives, but thankfully the creative among us do their best to remind us of nature’s wonders through all their hard work.
