NATURAL HISTORY

Rubus argutus 

A relative of roses, the 'tall' blackberry grows widely across the Eastern US. The shrubs flower white in the spring and berries appear in the summer. The plants are eaten by insects, birds and mammals; there's evidence humans have been eating blackberries for thousands of years.

METAPHOR

Fierceness and sweetness. The feeling of mid-summer.

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.

If you have questions about a specific timeline please get in touch before placing your order by emailing rebecca@shopthicket.com.

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!

Thoughtful, beautiful quality!

I bought a pair of the blackberry thorn studs as a gift and they are absolutely lovely. The care and connection Becca creates is apparent in not just the product but her customer support! Kind correspondence and thoughtful touches throughout. My sister sent me a photo as soon as it arrived because she loved both the jewelry and the style and packaging it was delivered in!

Gorgeous pieces

I absolutely adore all the pieces I’ve gotten from thicket and they have been really wonderful gifts as well. It’s hard to shop for family and close friends when you don’t want to buy them things that will end up in the landfill or taking up space on a shelf. Thicket is the perfect compromise of sustainable, beautiful, and small! And the customer service is top notch.

I love them! These were a (requested) Christmas present from a family member and she and I were both anxious because I only wear very small earrings and often studs end up being bigger than they look online, but they're incredibly delicate and detailed. Perfect for something special to wear everyday.

I have purchased a number of items from the website—lemon seed earrings for my mother-in-law and blackberry thorn earrings for myself. Becca also did some custom pieces for our family. I can say her work is so exquisite, but, also, she herself puts a great deal of thought and kindness in her interactions with her customers. Her jewelry is delicate and well-made, and crafted with a respect for the world and those who wear it.
