Designer Bella Milbank has taken the raw and organic shapes that surround us in nature and reinterpreted them to create a stunning collection of jewelry.

One of my favorite pieces is the Starburst necklace, which is made up of black pearls and forms models after a snake’s vertebrae.

These photos are definitely going into my inspiration folder for my next project.
