Look naturally stylish with our striking new Kōwhai Pod Earrings! These unique earrings are created with recycled sterling silver and cast from an actual kōwhai seed pod, which has been slightly scaled down so it's light to wear. We carefully selected this pod to have cast (from dozens!), as it perfectly captured the elegant curve of this natural form, which is mirrored in the pair. Finished with our own handmade recycled sterling silver hooks and rubber stopper for extra security.
Add a touch of nature and a unique look to your wardrobe with these beautiful and timeless earrings.
The kōwhai seed pod is a very distinctive shape, that forms after the tree has flowered and contains a number of bright yellow seeds of the kōwhai. The seeds readily germinate and young kōwhai seedlings are common around the garden where a tree is present. Native birds such as the tui, bellbird, kākā and New Zealand wood pigeon/kererū all benefit from kōwhai trees.
Earring length: 39mm (1.5in) excluding hook. Total length: 52mm (2in) including hook.
