These golden McIntosh apple seeds make for a juicy delicious way to subtly adorn your ears! Each piece of Thicket jewelry begins with casting botanical samples and natural objects. A mold is made of the natural object and through the process of lost-wax casting a perfect replica is created in fine metal.
These two golden apple seeds, cast from a McIntosh apple, preserve the minute detail of the surface of the seeds.
McIntosh apples have been bred from a single sapling found on the property of Canadian farmer John McIntosh in 1811. The trees grow best in climates where the fall days are sunny and the nights are cold.
