I have always liked the dried seed cases of the Honesty plant and have also heard them referred to as ‘Moon Pennies’ which I think is rather apt given their appearance when dried.

Originally created as a ring for the client’s boyfriend, I also went on to make a bangle because I liked the imprinted texture of the papery seed cases combined with the applied decoration of the Honesty seeds. Both pieces have been oxidised to bring out the detail.
