Cohosh Leaf Earrings, Green
Cohosh Leaf Earrings
¾” x 1 ¼” leaf plus ¾” earwire
The cohosh leaf has a lovely texture, but what really sets it apart is the intricate shape, which is captured in these organic earrings. Each bronze leaf is colored with dye oxide patina then sealed with lacquer and a museum quality preservation wax. The rounded earwires are niobium, a non-reactive, nickel-free metal, which is kind to sensitive ears.
All of my cohosh leaf textures were molded from a plant in the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden on the Boothbay peninsula.
Each Studio McManus creation is lovingly gift-wrapped with care instructions and information about how the piece was made.
