In her elegant and edgy jewelry, Atlanta artist Kristi Hyde takes style cues from patterns and textures in nature.

The artist: Grew up in Decatur, Ala., influenced by the fields, woods and Tennessee River around her. Hyde graduated in 1998 with a degree in illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Savannah campus and studied clay at the Penland School of Crafts (NC). While working in various art mediums in Atlanta, she started her handmade jewelry business in 2000 in Atlanta.

What’s popular: Hydrangea blossom rings and earrings ($168 to $600) and orchid leaf, semi-precious stone, and leather braided wrap cuffs ($600 to $1,700) with details that mimic curling leaves and blossoms as she turns real pieces of nature into sculpture.
