Gold Small Pointed Teardrop Cactus Hoop Earrings

assorted lost wax cast jewelry pieces

Jewelry made from the desert

Each cactus piece is handmade using a lost wax casting process.

First, I carefully select a section of prickly pear cactus skeleton. That skeleton is molded, then silver or gold is poured into the mold. The result is a solid metal replica of the cactus skeleton, which is then made into a piece of desert-inspired jewelry.

Each eco-friendly piece uses 100% recycled sterling silver or gold.

artisan made

Hi, I'm Clare, owner and maker of Lila Clare Jewelry. I make each piece of jewelry from the actual dried fibrous skeleton of the prickly pear cactus, resulting in artisan jewelry made in and from the southwestern desert. I have been making these unique jewelry pieces from the cactus skeleton since 2010.
