Lotus Pod Earrings

Statement: I had always wanted to make jewellery inspired by lotus seedpods- I was fascinated with their forms as well as how they were able to survive throughout the Ice Age. My mom found a bunch of these seed pods along Lake Erie, Ontario, and gave some to me. While they are huge, they are incredibly lightweight. Inspired by their relation to the water as the visuals of  their sections which hold seeds, I casted scrap silver in cold water to mimic these forms and reiterate the connection they have to water; I also added silver foil around select areas to show the value that I see within these natural objects.

Materials: Lotus seedpods, watercasted silver, silver foil, tissue paper, acrylic
