prickly pear cactus skeleton jewelry

The Desert Botanic Collection explores the subtle but breathtaking intricacies of the desert. The Prickly Pear Cactus, known also by its genus, Opuntia, is a stunning example of the desert's complexity. With its intricately wound interior, the Prickly Pear skeleton closely resembles a topographical map of geographically rich terrain.

Using the lost wax casting process, each of the botanic jewelry designs start with a carefully selected section of Prickly Pear Cactus skeleton. That skeleton is then hand cast using 100% recycled sterling silver, making it an entirely eco-friendly jewelry collection (available in gold vermeil and solid gold too!). The resulting prickly pear cactus jewelry made in Tucson, Arizona is an ornate and original replication of the distinctive plant. You’ll love wearing a piece of handmade botanical jewelry that is an authentic expression of nature’s art.
