Part of Skye’s horticulturally inspired design project called Fjell (Norwegian for mountain), this brass ring base with a burnished copper finish displays a tiny bowl made from a golden silk cocoon that holds a plump freshwater pearl. The pearl is nestled next to a bit of reindeer moss (which could be classified as lichen!). The silk nest lays on a bed of Skye’s hand felted sheep wool. The adjustable ring band makes it easy to wear a bit of earth magic on your hand.

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.
