Cast from a single tiny vertebra extracted from an owl pellet.

NATURAL HISTORY

Owls swallow their prey whole but are unable to digest bones and fur. They regurgitate the undigested parts of their prey as what are known as owl pellets. Based on the other bones found in the same owl pellet these vertebrae likely came from a field mouse or similar small rodent.

METAPHOR

Quality

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 hello@shopthicket.com or send a message if you have a piece in need of some love.

Care

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.

If you have any questions about the care of your jewelry get in touch!

Tiny and cute!

They’re even tinier than I had thought, so it’s harder to see all the details in person as much as in the pictures, but it also makes them a little more subtle for everyday wear. Came beautifully wrapped.

Love this stud, absolutely stunning

I had been looking at getting this stud since it was originally released and I finally did it. I have no regrets - this tiny vertebra is absolutely stunning and very, very tiny. It is so delicate and beautiful. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and recommend these studs to anyone on the fence about ordering.
