These glinting earrings are cast from a Catbrier thorn - a determined and tenacious climbing vine that forms dense thickets when left to its own devices.
Handcrafted in Portland, ME
From the artist: I started Thicket for fellow lovers of nature - for anyone who has ever picked up a smooth stone or seed pod and slipped it into their pocket as a way to carry a small piece of landscape with them.
I make each piece by hand from castings of botanical samples and natural objects in my sunny Maine studio. My aim is to preserve the small details of the natural world that have always fascinated me. Thicket's entire process is deeply tactile and sustainability is a key focus of Thicket's design and production practices.
Thicket jewelry is made almost entirely with reclaimed fine metals and is working constantly to move closer to using 100% recycled metals.
