David Howell – Mistletoe With Berries Earrings


The mistletoe of romance does not grow in America, but our native species serves the same decorative purpose. There are several kinds of mistletoe, parasites on both evergreen and deciduous trees.The name Phoradendron, for the principal American genus of the Mistletoe Family, is derived from Greek words meaning “tree-thief.”

The image and text for this earring was inspired by the Mary Vaux Walcott’s North American Wild Flowers, published by The Smithsonian Institution in 1925.

Solid brass, giclee print, hand gilded faux gold, ear wires are gold plated. Hangs approx. 1.50″ (Gift Boxed with Provenance Card).
