Scott & Sally Richards
After 5 years, 22 countries, and traveling the world 3 ½ times, we now live in North Port, Florida and work at what we love doing. Creating art and interacting with people at various farmers markets.
Approximately 1 year ago, I followed up on a promise I made to myself to make fish out of palm fronds I found all over. I still have the two first originals and have taken this particular style of art to a whole new level.
Hours of searching for the proper palm fronds during the correct season yields me very few top grade pieces to work on. They generally must dry between 6 months to a year and then if they still are suitable, I begin the transformation.
I see other artists involved with similar interests and materials as fellow friends of nature, not competitors.
My jewelry is all natural with a flair for the South Pacific or island look. Shell, bone, ceramic, glass and stone are utilized to produce a unique blend of art made from the earth and sky.
I never produce the same, exact piece twice. All jewelry and marine sculptures are one of a kind.
A special Thank You to all the businesses and individual members of our community who helped in making this mission a reality.
