Saverine Creek Heirlooms
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.
