Clever accessories inspired by nature.
Clever accessories inspired by nature. By Amanda Bedgood
Jewelry pieces influenced by Cajun country are not hard to find. But ones with a truly cool look and utterly Louisiana flavor are a bit more rare. And so we were happy to find four such pieces that pay homage to our favorite place in the world and remain totally fashion forward.

|Gators have gone mainstream as of late thanks to those people in the swamp
shooting and skinning them every week on national TV. We prefer our gators
with a little less blood. This clever open mouth alligator ring from Vanessa V., $12,
is a great addition to a rock 'n' roll look.
|For a chic take on the much-loved iconic Southern bloom - the magnolia - we
looked to Artisan Jewelry where Grayson Carroll crafted this gem of a piece. A
statement ring by definition, this magnolia gives a bold flavor to the most demure
of flowers. Ring $875.
The Pelican State was surely the inspiration for this Mimosa by M.E. necklace, $50,
found at Red Arrow Workshop. The folks at the newly opened store had a few
choices of the state's iconic bird, but we found this bronze one to be just what we'd
add to fall's boho look. Layer with a long gold necklace and some Frye boots.
|Oysters did more than inspire this piece from Andy's Jewelry. This mother of pearl
creation is crafted from an oyster and could easily go from day to night. Bracelet, $285.
