Red Elm Earrings 14k gold (Ulmus rubra)

315.00

We scour the forest floor along the James river every spring after a storm looking for the bits that fall from trees. Since there are lots of elms growing along the river, we usually find these small twigs that were getting ready to bud for spring before the weather knocked them off the tree.

This pair was so complimentary and perfect we decided to cast them in 14k gold. Before casting, we coat the branches in a thin layer of wax as seen in the photo. This ensures that the resulting cast will be smooth, not rough and pock-marked like regular bark.

The earrings are bright and reflective, hanging down about an inch. There is 2.3 pennyweights of gold in this pair.

  • 14k gold

  • Plant casting, one-of-a-kind

  • 3/4 inch branches, 1 inch drop with 14k ear wire

  • Ships in 1-2 days
