Two Pearl/Peapod Earrings
Peapods are a symbol of new life. They represent a new beginning and hope for greater things to come. The peapod earrings are a favorite gift for mothers and grandmothers with the number of pearls/peas representing number of children, grandchildren or siblings.
These unique earrings are made by creating a mold directly from a peapod in a process similar to lost-wax casting. Instead of using a hand carved model, the artist uses an actual peapod to make a mold. As it is heated, the peapod burns away and leaves behind a beautifully detailed mold of itself. The finish is achieved using a soft patina on bronze and then accented with fresh water pearls.
Made in the USA.
