Jenna says: This necklace is made from casting real succulent plants from local growers. Each succulent is hand cast in pewter - each an individual replica of the succulent from which it was cast. The design mimics the natural growth patterns of hens and chicks succulent plants- where the mother(hen) succulent sends out baby(chicks)offshoots to create the flower clusters you see in nature.
Energy efficient methods, recycled packaging and materials when appropriate, and labor and manufacturing sourced 100% in the USA are all aspects of our sustainable object making process. Specific to the succulent collection, pewter, with its low melting point, is an energy efficient metal to work with. All of our jewelry is handmade and artisan made with the utmost care for craft.
