The Elke Kramer SS12 jewelry collection offers a refreshing change from the recent lines that have been heavily influenced by geometry. This collection takes inspiration from flowers. As the designer's site says, she "imagined a glamorous botanist, her jewellery and accessories reflecting her fascination of the amazing and rare flora and fauna she examines picturing her sitting in her summer garden a cacophony of details and natural beauty surround her and adorn her."

Titled Second Nature, the Elke Kramer SS12 jewelry collection subtly references the floral form without going too much down the feminine route. Inspired by the microscopic studies of German biologist and philosopher Ernst Haeckel, the Elke Kramer SS12 jewelry collection is chunky, vintage and full of life.
