Pinecone Earrings

Statement: One year, my mom collected three large boxes of pinecones to use as Christmas decorations. For the remaining months of that year, and every time winter rolls around, when we go on walks we have to force her to refrain from picking up every pinecone she sees. While I was living in South Africa for a summer, I came across two tiny pinecones that were on a branch that had fallen from a tree. I saved, casted, and patina’d them when I was back in Canada, and gave them to her as a Christmas present.
