Sunflower Seed Earrings
Inspired by an actual sunflower seed shell from the designer Janet Mavec’s flower garden, these hanging earrings celebrate the beauty of an intriguing tiny shape that’s usually overlooked and discarded. By casting a single shell in brass, coating it with a matte antique gold finish, and securing it to the end of a short chain, Mavec created a just-dangly-enough set of earrings that’s perfect as a gift for the gardener in your life—or anyone who loves a touch of polish.
