The botanical pieces began with transforming native seeds of local plants into silver jewelry. The California Native Seeds Charm Bracelet is one example of this pursuit. It can be made with jade beads, as shown, pearls, or simply the silver. The Mega Acorn Necklaces are larger than life size fine silver acorns from various genus of oaks, handcrafted individually. The Date Seed Series were designed from the hanging tendrils on a fertile date palm. The contrasting center piece to the left is vintage glass, and turquoise, below. Other stones used are tourmaline, garnet, amethyst, and rutilated quartz.
