This Fern Artifact necklace features a fern charm that I cast using the lost wax casting method, with a beautiful green rose cut Adventurine in the center. It is surrounded by 8 more charms- a Chrysoprase disc, a triple Emerald bead charm, an Indian Agate lantern suspended from a twisty hoop, a tiny fern with a Chrysoprase, a wire-wrapped Adventurine bead, a wire-wrapped Prehnite bead, a fern charm with a green Chalcedony and the word “unfurl” on the back, and a wire-wrapped Chrysoprase bead.

These are all suspended from a sterling hoop. It measures 3 1/4” from tip to toe.

At the risk of sounding repetitive, Here is what I have told you about ferns in the past:

Ferns are so amazing! Before moving to the Pacific Northwest, when I thought of this area I envisioned ferns and redwoods and rocky coastlines. And that is exactly how I still see this paradise that I now get to cal home. I love ferns even more now that I am surrounded by them! The Old Farmer’s Almanac website, thealmanac.com, has this to say about ferns: “This ancient family of plants—which lived BEFORE dinosaurs walked the Earth—has a prominent place in folklore and legend. Ferns first show up in fossil records from a time over 100 million years before dinosaurs walked the Earth. In fact, ferns grew before flowering plants existed... Long ago, people couldn’t explain how ferns reproduced since they lack flowers or seeds. Therefore, fern seeds were thought to make one invisible. Today we know that ferns truly don’t have flowers or seeds. How do they reproduce? They have “spores.” With sunlight and photosynthesis, the spores grow into what is called gametes which are able to fertilize the sperm and start to move it into the fern plant. This is completely different than anything that happens with any other sort of flower! No wonder people were confused... Since the seeds couldn’t be seen, they were believed to be invisible.

The back of this necklace says “unfurl”, not only a reference to how ferns grow, but also a reminder to allow your self to let go, to loosen up, to grow how you are meant to.
