I love growing milkweed in my garden. Here’s a fun fact: milkweed is the only plant monarch caterpillars can eat, so it’s the only place where monarch butterflies will lay their eggs. Without milkweed, we’d have no monarch butterflies!
I’ve left the flowers and the leaves for the butterflies, but it turns out that the milkweed seedpods themselves make unique, beautiful jewelry. I love the texture and dimension of these cast pod earrings. With this version I have highlighted the inside of the pods with 23k gold keum-boo - to really draw the eyes into the insides.
Material: recycled sterling silver and 23k gold keum-boo
Earring length: 2.5”
Ear wire backs
