Natural world inspirations

I say on my facebook shop story that my work is inspired by the natural world. And why wouldn't it be, as a feeling artist - as a feeling human? Many, many artists and makers say the same. Yet there are some crazy, anarchic aspects to this heightened response to what I encounter as I walk through my local countryside. You get so tuned to see, that weird stuff features too. Here's a "monster" in the hedge that I pass most days - not an inspiration to produce any sort of literal image in jewellery, but it's there every day, saying "don't think nature is all beautiful - there's things killing each other out here too". That's the natural world too - hand in hand and tooth in claw. Inspiring, but not, in any romantic sense, "beautiful". Thank goodness it's not so simple!
