Berries and mushrooms found on the forest floor were the inspiration for this flexible bracelet and necklace made by Spain’s Chama Navarro. The flexibility of polymer covered wire allows the pieces to be worn in different ways – short, long, twisted or winding down the neck.

Her over-the-top polymer collar using Maggie Maggio’s watercolor technique is another example of work that pays homage to the artist who originated the idea while allowing Navarro’s style to shine through.
