Milkweed Pod Earrings

Fun fact: milkweed is the only plant monarch caterpillars can eat, so it’s the only place where monarch butterflies will lay their eggs. Without milkweed, we’d have no monarch butterflies! 

The texture and dimension of milkweed seedpods lend themselves to beautifully unique jewelry.
