Scarlet Emperor Bean Necklace
Sterling Silver necklace with scarlet emperor bean pendant.
Scarlet Emperor runner beans have been cultivated for many centuries in the cool, misty highlands of Central America where they grow as perennials. The necklace is made of a Sterling Silver cable chain which measures 18". The bean pendant is roughly 1" long. Each seed is unique so it's possible that your seed 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.
