I've always loved nature especially plant life. I've been thinking back this past week about when I was a girl going on hikes with my grandmother through the mountains of Colorado or along the lake in Oklahoma searching for nuts, leaves, rocks, or unusual plants.
I'm now grown and have two almost grown daughters, and I'm still taking hikes and walks looking for the same things.
Maybe that is why I find the prairies of Kansas so interesting throughout the year. I've been finding a lot of new plant life and using it to texture my metal clay jewelry.
I have some new prairie pretties listed on my new website. Go and take a gander at the new stuff. http://www.gayledowell.com/
