🌿🌻 These earrings are shaped by nature and then crafted into jewelry by hand.
These woody seed pods were gifted to us from a beautiful jacaranda tree in the South of Mexico we found while hiking through the western part of Chiapas. The Jacaranda tree is known for its ethereal blue flowers in early summer, followed by those woody seed pods, which contain numerous flat, winged seeds.
The seeds are taken out and a hole gets drilled into the upper part of the pod. Then the pod gets attached to an earhook with wire.
The tree represents wisdom, rebirth, wealth and good luck. The name jacaranda comes from a South American language Guarani and it means 'fragrant'.
