Samara Seed Earrings
These earrings are cast by me in brass and finished with a handmade sterling silver ear wire. Approx. 1 x 1 in.
Samara seeds twizzle down like tiny helicopters to the ground. These seeds are formed from a symmetrical cluster of flowers that attract pollinators. The female flowers have two fused carpels, which mature into a pair of winged fruits set at acute angles. These pairs are positioned opposite another pair in the same symmetry as the flowers. However, they detach themselves with a *free-spirited* randomness and helicopter down to earth.
