Called the flame flower for its vibrant red, orange, and yellow blooms, the California poppy is happiest in extremely sunny, sandy places. When its slender seed pod dries, it spirals into a unique circle, perfect for the loop of the earring.
I first discovered the seed pod of a California Poppy right outside my studio door. There were thousands of them that had dropped to the ground. They are a small delicate pod with a channel along the outside edge that holds the seeds. A few of the pods had curled up and inspired me to cast them in this shape. So simple but such a classic design.
A great lightweight pair of earrings that can be worn everyday. These would look great with the California Poppy Pod Charm necklace.
