False Spikethorn Seedpod Necklace

Tiffany Marx


The False Spikethorn is an evergreen tree that is indigenous to South Africa; its seedpods are sculptural and unusual, inspiration for artist Tiffany Marx. Using the lost wax casting technique, she transforms the seedpods into perfect, lasting sterling silver replicas, each with their own signature and totally unique and special. This pendant is strung on a thin sterling silver chain and is sure to be noticed as you take a little piece of South Africa with you.
