Artist bio: If time stands still for you when you're basking in the beauty of a national park, she knows how you feel. The artist's wearable clay sculptures are a love letter to our nation's natural treasures, inspired by her frequent visits and fascination with every distinctive ecosystem. "I love photographing the smallest details about each park," Grace says, "like the moss on a rock or the tiniest bug or flower bud." These photos help her replicate an accurate color palette and recapture the magic of each location in a durable, waterproof creation designed with outdoorsy adventures in mind. To protect these destinations for future generations, 10% of your purchase will go directly to the National Parks Foundation.

Artist Statement: I create miniature, wearable, original clay sculptures inside brass necklace pendants. I sculpt special series of the mountain ranges, land formations & wildflowers featured in the National Parks & Forests. 10% of all profits are donated back to the National Park Foundation.
