The Fern and Thread series is inspired by the abundant ferns in the Pacific Northwest forests. While being sheltered in place, Arielle Brackett has been taking daily neighborhood walks. On each walk she finds a new plant or garden that catches her eye. Lately she has been noticing the varieties of large beautiful ferns in peoples’ gardens. She collects fern specimens and makes sun prints, which become her pattern. Each fern she delicately cut my hand with a jewelry saw. She drills holes in the brass to create an area for the silk thread to be sewn into place. The addition of the hand sewn detail of the thread creates dimension and is an elegant detail. Each pair of earrings are one of a kind and she makes them all my hand. They are lightweight, yet bold statement earrings that complete any outfit. They can be worn to dressed up or down for any occasion. Brackett made these earrings with a marriage of brass, sterling silver and silk thread. The metals are ethically sourced through trusted suppliers. All ear wires and posts are sterling silver.
Metal oxidation occurs naturally. When caring for your jewelry, Brackett recommends it’s important to remove jewelry when showering, swimming, sleeping and while applying hair and body products. Although she recommends embracing these natural occurrences, she uses a polishing cloth and avoids the thread as it can
scratch or weaken the non-metal material. Jewelry should please store in a dry environment in a sealed ziplock bag.
