The Hyacinth Bean (Dolichos Lablab) has a long history of being an exceptional ornamental vine. It produces long spiked clusters of lavender flowers which are held above the purple tinged foliage and purple stems. Blooms turn into beautiful purple pods adding interest to the vine all summer. Mount Vernon’s Hyacinth Bean pods are the inspiration for Silver Seasons artist Michael Michaud in creating these “copies of nature” jewelry using the lost wax casting method.
The 18” adjustable necklace is leather. The double pod pendant, which is approximately 2” long, is made from hand patinaed bronze and hand cast glass.
