This pendant features three Star Anise Seed Pods plated in copper and "aged" to give them a bluegreen patina. Star Anise is a licorice-like spice often used in asian dishes (like my fave, pho!) or pumpkin spice.
Using a process called Electroforming, we are able to "grow" the copper over an organic item. This preserves the intricate details and keeps the original item forever entombed in copper. Copper is deposited onto the piece over 18-36 hours using an acid bath and electricity. It's science that feels like magic!
