not an actual life cycle
silver, copper, 24k, enamel, coral

i look at a lot of life-cycle diagrams in my garden-related research of insect identification and plant growth. i've always loved the layout associated with these illustrations and have translated that into the framework of this piece. the elements represented include details of a poppy seed pod, a plant cell, mason bee house, and paper wasp nest. i found the brain coral in Bahia Honda state park while camping in the keys. this piece is a pendant and comes with your choice of oxidized silver chain.
