3 Peas in a Pod Earrings

These Pea Pod Earrings are cast directly from a pea plant to perfectly capture its form and texture.  Cast in bronze, hand-patinaed and highlighted by three white pearl peas nestled inside, can signify children, friends or family members. Perfect gift for a mother, grandmother of three or 3 special friends. Measures 1 1/2" long.

These annuals prefer cool weather and mature early. The "peas" inside the pod are considered berries by botanists. Common folklore regarding peas is that if you count the number of peas in a pod the crop will fail. Pennsylvanian Germans always planted peas under the sign of Gemini, hoping to get two for one and double pods.
