Glass Gem Corn Cluster Earrings
Precious clusters of glass gem kernels. Sterling Silver.
Glass Gem was bred by Cherokee breeder and seedsman Carl Barnes, and was developed by crossing a mixture of Native American corns, including popcorns and flour corns. The surprising, infinite color combinations of this corn will stop you in your tracks and are unlike any other corn we've seen. Each kernel shines with the brilliance of a beautiful piece of glass. Each earring is made of Sterling Silver, has 3 corn kernels and is 1" long. Each seed is unique so it's possible that your earrings may look a little different from the picture.
About the Artist:
Debbie Groat started designing seed jewelry when she fell in love with the natural varied beauty of heirloom beans. She says, "Heirloom dry beans and corn are beautiful natural treasures, genetically untouched seed passed down from generation to generation. My jewelry is made from these ancient strains once propagated for their life-sustaining nutritional properties. Now rare, we help keep these strains alive through cultivation and by incorporating these beautiful gems of the soil into unique handmade artisan jewelry."
Caring for your Heirloom Seed Jewelry:
Your seed jewelry is durable and will last for years, just keep these simple tips in mind. Keep seeds dry (avoid showers/bathing while wearing jewelry) and store in a tightly sealed container when not wearing.
