The Pod Earrings, Freshwater Pearls
The Pod Earrings
Sterling Silver Jewelry, Earrings, Hooks, Freshwater Pearl, 7/8" x 1"
I really love the shape of a pod, so beautifully engineered - like a protective mother shielding her jewels from harm and ensuring their safe delivery. I found this pod while hiking in the Sonoran desert. I'm not sure what plant it is from as I found it in the middle of a trail. But I was impressed by its delicacy and size. When I returned to my studio I encased it in wax, working to preserve the over all natural design. The pearls were found at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show. Pods have long been a symbol of fertility, new life, new beginning and beacons of hope for greater things to come. A lot to be found in a small package!
