Slippery Elm Earrings
(Ulmus rubra)

65.00

Two little elm twigs were cast in sterling silver to make these earrings.  The pattern of the emerging buds gives them texture.  The twigs are different from each other but match their partner in size and shape.  

  • Sterling silver
  • Live plant molds, one-of-a-kind piece
  • 2 inch drop in length

We have had several bad storms this winter on the east coast, and spring came a little later than normal.  We found several downed branches from a slippery elm that was just beginning to bud for spring.  

We clipped over a hundred of the tips of these twigs, coated them in wax and cast them in silver.  The shiny silver twigs that result are being put together in a few different ways, and these earrings are a simple and beautiful vertical flash of light.
