Small California Poppy Pod Hoops on Wire

A California poppy seed pod is cast in sterling silver. These earrings are lightweight and easy to wear—a fun take on a classic design.

Called the flame flower for its vibrant red, orange, and yellow blooms, the California poppy is happiest in extremely sunny, sandy places. When its slender seed pod dries, it spirals into a unique circle, perfect for the loop of the earring.

These earrings pair wonderfully with the California poppy pod charm necklace. 

Material: recycled sterling silver
Finish: oxidized
Earring length: 1 1/4”
Earwire backs
