Dawn Redwood Studs (Metasequoia glyptostroboides)

35.00

Dawn redwoods are the smaller cousins of the huge west coast redwoods. The scientific name for the tree “glyptostroboides” means “lips” in Latin, referring to the shape of each individual scale on the cone.

Occasionally a cast of the whole cone doesn’t fill, and we are left with a few of these lip-shaped scales on an incomplete cone. We saw off these bits and turn them into stud earrings. Small and simple silver studs, these scales add an organic texture to your accessories. Each set is a little different from the next, ensuring that your earrings are a one-of-a-kind replica of nature.

  • Sterling Silver

  • Live cast - one-of-a-kind

  • 1/2 an inch long
