Inspiration in cave pearls

I recently read about a cave that was discovered somewhere that was so big it had a rain forest inside. They also mentioned cave pearls.  From Wikipedia ... cave pearl is a small, usually spherical, speleothem (cave formation) found in limestone caves. Cave pearls are formed by a concretion of calcium salts that form concentric layers around a nucleus. Exposure to moving water polishes the surface of cave pearls, making them glossy; if exposed to the air, cave pearls can degrade and appear rough.

If you google them you will see how beautiful the designs are. These are some of the felted pieces I have been playing around with using cave pearls as my inspiration.
