The French Tangerine: ~ flowers vs. food
http://www.uncommongoods.com/artist?artistId=369 (link for jewelery) Margaret's work is made by hand from over 40 different varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables that are cured, dried, pressed and aged in a 10-14 day process. The translucent parchments that result capture and preserve the jewel-like colors and intricate structures that are characteristic of each fruit or vegetable.

i like the romantic-farmers' market vibe. though, i can't help but think - who are we kidding - we're not in a park, we're in an urban setting. i believe the moment we embrace the --shoplifting/knife wielding/meth head/transit depot/tat parlour/pawn shop-- color of the environment, is the moment we become a recognized member of the community landscape.
