No question the flowers of poppy plants are vibrant and gorgeous. But if you’re fascinated by Nature’s many varieties and textures, you can’t beat the poppy seed pod. There is something almost otherworldly and beautiful about its shape. Here I’ve combined the pods of two of my favorite species to create these unusual, dainty earrings.
Called the flame flower for its vibrant red, orange, and yellow blooms, the California poppy creates a slender seed pod that spirals as it dries into a unique circle, perfect for the loop of the earring. I cast these seed pods along with the pods of Shirley poppies in sterling silver and hung the charms from the loops. Paired together, the seed pods create beautiful, delicate, wholly unique earrings.
These earrings pair beautifully with the hoop charm necklace with hemlock pine cone, daffodil trumpet, and wild lily pod charms.
