Blackberry Thorns Stud Earrings by Thicket
Blackberry Thorn Studs
Cast from a tiny but very fierce blackberry thorn into solid fine metal.
Natural History: Rubus argutus
A relative of roses, the 'tall' blackberry grows widely across the Eastern US. The shrubs flower white in the spring and berries appear in the summer. The plants are eaten by insects, birds, and mammals; there's evidence humans have been eating blackberries for thousands of years.
Metaphor: Fierceness & Sweetness. The feeling of mid-summer.
