Surrounded by the wild flora of Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges, Lucy Hearn and Lily Daley (@peachesandkeen) describe their workshop spot as a forest paradise. For the past seven years, the best friends have created nature-inspired jewelry and colorful art constructed from foraged plants. These “botanical calamity artworks” are constructed completely by hand, without any computer editing. “Sometimes they take hours to create as we source and arrange each individual detail,” the women explain. “And then they are gone with a gust of wind!”
Both Lucy and Lily are moms, but their work remains a focus plus an artistic outlet outside of their everyday lives. In one caption Lucy and Lily suggest another name for the children — “interns in training.”
