Artist Statement: These dyed Mother of Pearl beads are the closest thing I've found to real peas. The color is a vibrant natural green that just pops when paired with a leaf of metal. The sterling silver leaves are formed to cup each graduated pearl, creating a wavy look that still allows the beads to spin on their wirewrapped frame. They are hung from sterling silver earwires. The back of one pod is stamped with my signature 'sudlow'
