Ash seeds, also known as keys or samara, grow in great clusters on the tree. The seeds are thin with fine veining perfect for casting. These earrings are lightweight and airy with a feathery quality and playful movement. Cast from the actual plant in solid recycled metal preserving the unique nature of each plant to make truly true-to-nature jewelry.

Ash trees, genus Fraxinus, are disappearing across North America, they are plagued by the emerald ash borer. Each year it seems I lose another source for these lovely seeds.

  • 5 seeds in each
  • 2.5 to 3 inches long x .5 inch wide
  • Shepard hooks and wires are sterling silver or gold plated sterling silver
  • bronze, sterling silver, or gold vermeil

Tree trunk arts hand casts natural elements in solid silver and bronze. Through the wonder of nature and the artist’s spin on the lost wax casting process, each piece is unique. The plant parts are put into a wet plaster then the plaster mold goes into a kiln for 8+ hours, burning out the plant material to create a mold. Molten metal is centrifugally thrown into the mold creating a solid metal model to be then transformed into ready to wear jewelry.
Each piece is cast from the actual plant in solid bronze or sterling silver.

Ash seed earrings

I have a vast collection of tree trunk arts earrings but I think this was my first set! Still beautiful after all these years; they are light and shiny in my dark hair. I love that I know their back story and that ash trees are disappearing, so these could be rare some day!

Nature at Her Best - Large Bunch Sterling Ash Seed Earrings

My first pair of Collyn's earrings, (purchased at Art in the Park in Birmingham, Michigan, Mother's Day weekend 2019) continue to be one of my favorite tree trunk arts' designs. The earrings are light, perfectly weighted and organic. . Collyn manages to create a subtle variation in each earring,, capturing nature's unique sense of artistry with an attention to detail, both impeccable and whimsical at the same time. . The love and skillful attention she brings to each design is a mediation inspired and infused by a deep connection to the natural world.

Movement

I love the movement on these earrings! The length as well. I am a lover of nature all thanks to my mother who was a biologist. She would gather us all up, cousins, bothers and sisters and take us for walks in the woods when we were on vacation. My mother would talk about everything from birds to plants and instilled conservancy of all living things. I save seeds as these that Collyn preserves in her jewelry. I use them in my encaustic work but to preserve in jewelry! That is a true treasure. Thank you for bringing nature to adorn us and keep forever!
