As an island in the subtropics, Saint Helena has some amazing vegetation not the least of which are these towering eucalyptus trees that stand in groves on steep mountainsides.
I modified what I do for my grass/flax design and used it as stripes that mimic the peeling bark of the eucalyptus tree. Researching the trees a bit more I learned about the painted or rainbow eucalyptus. I'll be exploring this design for a while in both greys and color. I chose brass findings in warmer choices to sterling silver.
