Saverine Creek Heirlooms

Rather than expensive jewels, this jeweler uses heirloom beans and seeds

Cherokee Trail of Tears Bean Earrings

Who needs precious gems and expensive stones? Who says diamonds are a girl’s best friend? Saverine Creek Heirlooms makes beautiful unique jewelry using — rather than expensive jewels — heirloom beans and seeds. Instead of wearing a sparkly cubic zirconium pendant, why not sport something spectacular and unexpected, like a corn kernel tennis bracelet — or perhaps some beautiful silver-and-bean earrings? Made with antique silver tone and surgical steel French wires, these two-inch earrings also feature a pop of color courtesy of six turquoise stones.  Wound with quality metals, Saverine Creek’s jewelry is hand-made with natural, organic materials. The seeds and beans are hand-harvested from the company’s centennial farm, which helps to preserve the genetically untouched heirloom nature of the crops used to craft the jewelry. While a vast stock of jewelry is available via the company’s website, you’ll also spot Saverine Creek at Eastern Market every Sunday.
