Ring by Andrea Williams. Artist's statement: "I live in the woods. I stack rocks for fun. I hunt for wild mushrooms. I keep bees. I spend summer days gardening. I find beauty in improbable places. My jewelry is an expression of the wonder I sense in the overlooked intricacies in nature. When we see stones in infinite numbers underfoot at the beach, we cannot help but to miss the unique perfection in each."
Orangutans - “ (...) this mother and her young sat quietly for many minutes before this photo was made. the juvenile placed his finger on his mother’s lower lip in a very gentle way. after a few seconds, the mother wrapped her hand around her son’s hand and i caught this tender, intimate moment.” - photo and text by jami tarris at the tanjung puting national park in indonesia
