Artist Skye Bergen captures little moments in time by preserving her favorite bits of nature in clear resin. This square pendant, with the unique addition of Skye’s hand felted sheep wool backing, holds a tiny piece of lichen (a unique organism that is fungi and algae living together symbiotically) collected from an old rose bush in Calistoga and a delightfully wrinkled freshwater pearl. This botanically inspired pendant has a handmade silver wire jump ring.
About The Artist
Skye Bergen only understands the world around her by touching it. She works in plants, textiles, fibers, paint, photography, resin, sculpture, music, and sound to make both wearable and non-wearable art. She makes noise and grows things. Skye is obsessed with pearls and lichen. Having discovered the therapeutic powers of gardening a few years ago, Skye decided that her ultimate life goal is to create and build a grief therapy garden in Sacramento for the public, dedicated to those living with mental illness.
