Prick Up Your Ears

No shrinking violet, the cactus is a free-spirited plant, built for a life of adventure. Best known for its spiky defenses, the cactus is also beautiful on the inside: it has a surprisingly intricate inner structure of lace-like, interwoven fibers.

Celebrate your own combination of outer strength and inner beauty with these adventurous earrings. The delicate, abstracted forms are actually cast from a piece of Prickly Pear skeleton. The organic material is carefully selected and trimmed to the perfect, appealing shape, and then reproduced in recycled sterling silver using the "lost wax" casting method. Handmade in Los Angeles, California.
