Autumn Blossoms

A branched twig converted into a jewelry/ key holder

Nature is the best inspiration humanity is bestowed with. So is it with our homes.

I found this regular leafless branch lying de-rooted in my building compound. I thought, If used aesthetically, the angular branching of these twigs would provide a great visual treat for our homes.

So, I took the branch, and firstly, axed it to the required size. Also the length of the branches was cut to provide good visual balance. Then orange colored wool was wrapped around the branches till a sizeable mass was made.  These wool cocoons would act as bumpers to help make sure the keys or jewelry do not slide down; also earring can be pierced in them to stay. The branch is then potted with moss for stability. And that’s about it!

The potted-branched twig looks like a quasi tree: with colorful sprouting which helps lift the dead wood and provides the functionality for home use. Put this blossoming tree on your dresser – and let you and your reflections admire the beauty of it.

Nature is a brilliant source to make our homes look good. Use natural elements (like leaves, woods, flowers, etc.) with a twist of functionality to make it more meaningful for home utility.
