flower power earrings with blue zircon

flower power earrings with blue zircon

Cast sterling arnica flower calyx set with 5mm natural blue zircon with 18karat gold drop ear wires. Oxidized to highlight details.

1 1/2" from top to bottom.

A few examples of arnica flower calyx are pictured, similar to the one from which the earrings were prototyped. When arnica grows in the shade, or a flower on the plant gets a late start, the petals of the emerging flowers are diminutive and do not fully emerge. Instead, growth occurs in the sepals of the calyx, which, become increasingly elaborate, and come to resemble flowers themselves. You can see the tiny emerging petals in the earring center, pushed over the stones. More on arnica with yellow arnica flower image, listed on this page.

Sepals become like flowers.

Feminine. Elegant. Flower power.

Flowers all year.


This earring is also available in amethyst  - one version oxidized  and one polished as above,  and in orange spessartite garnet, both $250.  Please message me if you are interested. I will  post images my first opportunity.
