Description

Thicket is minimal jewelry inspired by the natural world. The process of the work begins with casting found and foraged botanical specimens and other natural objects. Each piece is made by hand by designer Rebecca Perea-Kane using traditional metalsmithing techniques and sustainable, reclaimed materials.
