An exact casting of a tiny common milkweed seed pod, with minute detail of texture on its surface, and an interior golden hollow.


Asclepias syriaca

Common milkweed is native to North America and an important species to pollinators. The genus name, Asclepias, commemorates Asklepios, the Greek god of medicine because many plants in the milkweed family have been used for medicinal purposes over time. Milkweed loves sun and does well in areas that have been previously disturbed. It is often seen along roadsides and fence rows as well as in prairies and pastures. Milkweed leaves are the primary food source of monarch caterpillars. Compounds present in milkweed plants, cardiac glycosides, make monarch larvae and adult butterflies toxic to birds and deter predation.


Healing and protection. The sound of humming insects on a summer afternoon.

recycled sterling silver, interior hollow of pendant plated in 14k yellow gold

1.5 mm cable chain with lobster clasp

available chain lengths: 32 inches |  81.3 cm

A note about plating: Thicket jewelry is intentionally crafted from solid fine metal for quality and longevity. The only place you will find plating is on interior hollows, like in this piece, that are protected from wear and will stand the test of time.

Each and every piece of Thicket jewelry is carefully made by hand in Thicket's studio and production can take 1-2 weeks before your order is ready to ship.

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.


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!

My beautiful Milkweed Pod necklace

I am so thrilled with my milkweed pod necklace. It is so beautiful. I love the detail. Milkweed pods have a special place in my heart as they are a food source for Monarch butterflies and I use them the make rustic Santa ornaments for Christmas....I also love to support fellow artisans.
