Protecting the Seed is a nature seed pod called a "samara" from the Maple Tree often termed by children as "wings" or "propeller" or "helicopter seeds". This bronze pendant is from my Earth Keeper series of work which focuses on protection of our environment. A beautiful gift for gardeners, forestry and nature enthusiasts and anyone who nurtures and protects our mother earth. This seed pod/"wing" has exquisite detail and texture. 1.5" pendant length. Can be hung on cord or chain.
One pendant per listing. Last two photos show two pendants for variation in design. Each one is "cast" from nature, handcrafted one at a time, and completely unique.
