Catbrier Thorn Earrings

Thicket

These glinting earrings are cast from a Catbrier thorn - a determined and tenacious climbing vine that forms dense thickets when left to its own devices.

NATURAL HISTORY

Smilax rotundifolia

Catbriers, also known as greenbriers, are a tenacious climbing vine that reaches out with tendrils to grow and spread into dense thickets when left to its own devices. The plant blooms with small yellow-green flowers in May and June. Although catbriers cause trouble for gardeners their berries feed black bears, bluebirds and sparrows and deer feed on their leaves.

Greenbriers take their name from the Greek myth of Crocus and Smilax. Crocus, a mortal man, fell in love with the nymph Smilax and was transformed into a flower and Smilax, the woodland nymph, was transformed into a brambly vine.

METAPHOR

Tenacity and love. The feeling of a summer morning before the heat arrives.
