Mimosa Handcrafted - State Flower Necklace
A little background: I graduated in Landscape Architecture and at my last job I spent the last 3 months rendering native plants for a book my boss was writing. With all of that plant rendering experience fresh in my mind I had to incorporate it into jewelry somehow. So the LA state flower pendant was born!
To begin I hand drew the state flower at a much larger scale about 4"x8". Then I had stamps created from this hand drawing. Each pendant is made of recycled bronze and hand stamped/cut and assembled by me in my home studio in Louisiana. The look of pendants is vintage inspired, imagine an old family piece handed down for generation, a long octagonal shape and hang from a 18" gold filled chain. Due to its handmade and custom nature variations will occur.
