Description

This Michael Michaud pea pod pendant necklace captures the beauty of this popular plant. The necklace features a pendant showing a small pea pod plant with three white freshwater pearls representing the peas inside. The pea pod is cast in bronze and finished with a pretty green patina.

The pendant measures approximately 1.13” long (including the bail, or loop for chain) by approximately 0.2” wide. The chain features a lobster clasp and extender which allows the necklace to be worn anywhere from approximately 16″ long to approximately 18″ long. Please note that the dime is not included but is shown to help you gauge the size of the jewelry.

This handmade necklace would make a great gift for anyone who loves peapods, pearl jewelry, nature jewelry, or handcrafted artisan jewelry. This necklace has also been popular for wedding jewelry, especially for nature themed weddings.

This necklace was handmade in the USA by talented jewelry artist Michael Michaud as part of his Silver Seasons collection. This necklace comes with our original jewelry store tags and store gift box, great for giving or storage for years to come. This pea pod necklace also comes with an information card that states the following:

PEA POD

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. Pennsylvania Germans always planted peas under the sign of Gemini, hoping to get two for one and double pods.

Hand patinaed bronze with fresh water pearls.  Certain styles available in sterling silver and some available in gold or silver plate over bronze. Handmade in the USA.
