Working in a remote part of Michigan, away from shopping malls, TV and traffic lights, Hubbard Lake silversmith Betsy Lehndorff has developed a quirky style of jewelry crawling with nature. Sterling silver bugs clamber over necks and earlobes. Pearls partner up with fern leaves, and pendants glisten with regional gemstones. A journalist, Lehndorff's goal as an artist is to question long-standing myths about jewelry making and develop practical innovations. Sometimes her pieces also tell a story.
