This glinting thorn necklace pendant is cast from a Catbrier thorn - a determined and tenacious climbing vine that forms dense thickets when left to its own devices.


Smilax rotundifolia

Catbriers, also known as greenbriers, are a tenacious climbing vine that reaches out with tendrils to grow and spread into dense thickets when left to its own devices. The plant blooms with small yellow-green flowers in May and June. Although catbriers cause trouble for gardeners their berries feed black bears, bluebirds and sparrows and deer feed on their leaves.

Greenbriers take their name from the Greek myth of Crocus and Smilax. Crocus, a mortal man, fell in love with the nymph Smilax and was transformed into a flower and Smilax, the woodland nymph, was transformed into a brambly vine.


Tenacity and love. The feeling of a summer morning before the heat arrives.

Thicket jewelry is carefully made by hand, one piece at a time, by designer Rebecca Perea-Kane using traditional metalsmithing techniques. You can learn more about Rebecca and the process right here. Pieces are designed and crafted to be of heirloom quality.

Thicket will clean, re-oxidize and repair your Thicket jewelry at any point in its lifetime (which will be long!). Email or send a message if you have a piece in need of some love.


Thicket jewelry is meant to be worn and loved but it's always advisable to remove jewelry before exercising, swimming and using harsh chemicals such as cleaning solutions. If you use your hands for work or for other pursuits like gardening or cooking, it's also a good idea to remove rings and bracelets. (And if the piece includes a set diamond you will definitely want to take it off for any activity where it may experience any impacts!)

You can clean your jewelry at home with a soft jewelry cloth or with a gentle soap and a soft toothbrush. If your piece includes oxidized sterling silver avoid vigorous polishing to preserve the darkened finish.

If your piece is set with a diamond it is important to regularly inspect it to be sure the diamond is secure and that there is no movement of the stone in the setting.

Love it

I absolutely love this necklace. It's so delicate and beautiful and really does go with everything. I got the yellow gold pendant with oxidized silver necklace and love how those metals look together.


I love this necklace so much. It is beautifully crafted and the perfect subtle piece that goes with everything. High quality and the service was great. I wanted this necklace for a long time before purchasing and when I finally received it, it was so worth the wait. I get a lot of compliments on it!


I have a thorn necklace from Thicket that I wear all the time. It’s great to wear on its own, but also looks amazing layered with other necklaces. The details on the tiny thorn are so stunning! It’s definitely one of my favorite pieces of jewelry and you can see how much care and love went into the making of this piece!
