Four iridescent freshwater pearls in various sizes are nestled in a hand-patinaed bronze pea pod pin with a curly tendril.
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.
