My mother just surprised me with the first batch of Sarracenia jewelry. It's 99.9 pure sterling silver; it's incredibly realistic! You can see each individual vein, the ala, and the peristome! I left the camera at home, so I'll post pics monday or tuesday. If anyone is interested in them, let me know and let us know what you think when I post pictures. I plan on auctioning off some at the next charity auction. Right now they are just pure silver, but later I want to experiment with natural gemstones. She even added little silver dragonflies!
She's gonna teach me! she said she didn't like my S. wrigleyana, what do you guys think? I'd also like to make Dionaea earing and pendants, but the traps close! Any tips on how to cut fresh traps so they won't close?
