spruce needle studs
This pair of earrings is cast from a single needle of red spruce cut into two segments. The naturally four-sided needle catches the light with subtle texture.
The red spruce grows across Northeastern North America throughout Canada, New England, and as far south as Virginia at higher elevations. Red spruces are tolerant of shade and thin soil. They provide food to numerous wildlife species such as red squirrels and spruce grouse. The trees are harvested for lumber but also for use in musical instruments because of their resonant wood.
The feeling of quiet in a stand of evergreen trees.

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 email@example.com 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.
