More Details about the Piece from the Artist, Adela:
"'Hylocomium Splendens' is commonly known as 'glittering wood moss.' This specimen was collected from a forest of Brasov city, pressed and preserved in resin.
The rig is made of 925 sterling silver and adjustable band with the plant preserved on a white background, to highlight the delicate details of the moss.
The plant is kept inside a strong clear resin that will last for many years, for your children and your nieces to admire it.
If you will own this jewellery you become part of a worldwide movement of preserving nature and rising awareness to the danger pose of pollution. If we can make more and more people realise that plants are crucial for a healthy ecosystem, we are one step closer to a better world."
We love this sentiment and couldn't agree more! Enjoy!
