Sure, the Sweet Four O'Clock is a night-flowering plant of the southwest, but you'll look great in these earrings. All. Day. Long. 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.
The design for this pair of earrings begins with the seed pod of the Mirabilis longiflora, commonly known as the Sweet Four O'Clock, a plant native to the Southwestern United States and Mexico which was cultivated by the Aztecs for medicinal and ornamental purposes.
- These earrings are cast in bright, recycled sterling silver and dangle from handmade, sterling silver ear hooks.
- The rippled surface of the seed pod catches light from every angle to dazzle with a unique, nature-inspired sparkle.
- Made by hand in Thicket's Charlottesville studio by designer Rebecca Perea-Kane.
