Each piece of Thicket jewelry begins with casting botanical samples and natural objects. A mold is made of the natural object and through the process of lost-wax casting a perfect replica is created in fine metal.
This pendant is an exact sterling silver casting of an especially tiny, and heart-shaped, cardamom pod, with all the minute detail of its shape and texture.
Green or true cardamom is a member of the ginger family and native to southern India, though now it is cultivated many places around the world.
This little pod comes on an 18" cable chain made from reclaimed sterling silver.
Made by hand in Thicket's Charlottesville studio by designer Rebecca Perea-Kane.
