These one-of-a-kind earring were curated in Brasov, Romania by a Romanian artist named Adela Cremene. She takes natural flora that is native to Romania and found near her hometown of Brasov, dries it, sets it in resin and then mounts it on sterling silver to create a special piece of wearable art.
- Post earrings are made of 925 sterling silver
- " wide with a beautiful green background to highlight the details of the veins.
More Details about the Piece from the Artist, Adela:
"'Tilia tomentosa', also known as the silver lime tree or silver linden, is my favourite tree.
After the cold winter and the spring defrost, only the veins of the leaf remained, looking like a delicate lace. In our walks through the woods and parks of Brasov, we collected these leaves, pressed and preserved it in resin, as in a modern amber.
Because it preserves a forest tree's leaf, this jewelry is a valuable piece of herbarium.
The leaf 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 jewelry 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!
