Mimosa Blossom Necklace

Hanging from this fine cable chain necklace is a cast mimosa blossom that swings from a ring made of square wire.

The artist was inspired by the beautiful pink flower clusters on her own Mimosa tree, also known as Persian silk trees for their thread-like petals. Once the tree started to bloom, she discovered that even its buds have unusual, striking textures that make them great fun for jewelry.
