Stapelia Grandiflora

Cast sterling silver Stapelia Grandiflora reproductive system, drop earring set with 4mm natural blue zircon.

I walked into my studio one day and immediately thought that perhaps I had left some food out over the weekend. A friend had given me a few cuttings of a plant but hadn't told me what to expect other than it would be easy to grow. It was a stinky flower! It produced a  beautiful 10" diameter flower and the smell was terrible!  but in  the center was this intricate and beautiful form that is its reproductive system. It was a  ready made,  and even the filaments became the prongs to set the stone. It is 1/2" in diameter and 1/2" high. The entire earring is 15/16" top to bottom.

Light. Swingy. Intricate.

Quintessentially feminine.
