Sweet, tiny jewels, made with life cast Mānuka seed pods.
A species of flowering plant native to New Zealand, Mānuka trees flower in white, or occasionally pink or red, in flourishes of tiny five petaled flowers. Manuka leaves are prickly and the enchanting little seed capsules often remain on the plant year round.
These jewels are life cast from foraged Mānuka pods, which mean every single one is unique. I life cast the pods and then make the jewels to order here in my Auckland studio.
These botanical jewels are the perfect giving gift and lovely way to adorn nature on your self.
