Cranberry Necklace (Highbush), Garnet
Silver Jewelry, Garnets, 7/8" x 3/4", 18" Chain
The Garnet beads shimmer with a rosy cachet when backed by these highly reflective silver leaves. The Highbush Cranberry, is 3 to 5 ft. tall shrub which grows in the under-story of our northern forests. After the first frost, they have a very distinctive fragrance so you always know when they are ready to pick. We make jams, jellies, butter and just about anything you can think of. I love juicing the berries and making a punch with apple cider. When I first moved to Alaska and smelled the pungent odor of the berries for the first time, I wondered where that "stink" was coming from. Over the years I have learned to anticipate the fragrance as a sign of the upcoming harvest!
