Each month, Saverine Creek Heirloom Seed Jewelry focuses on a bean or seed to introduce you to the little beauties around which we center our designs.
June 2018 introduces you to the Oaxacan Green Dent Corn Seed
My brother Doug introduced Oaxacan Green Dent to me when he first grew it 12 years ago our family farm garden. He was so excited about it but when he handed me that first ear my heart sank. I thought it was . . . well . . . homely! All I could think was: WHAT on earth am I going to do with THIS???" Where were those shiny brightly colored kernels glinting beautifully in the sun that he told me about?!? But I mustered up gratitude for his effort to force out a subdued "Wow." And, of course, this corn ended up one of the most interesting, conversation-starting, unique seeds in my collection!
Oaxacan Green Dent corn has purportedly been grown by the indigenous Zapotec people in the Oaxacan Valley of Mexico for centuries but this "history" is disputed becaise no archaeological evidence supports it originating there. Whatever its exact origin, Oaxacan Green Dent is truly a beauty.
OGD-B Oaxacan Green Dent Corn bracelet
This bracelet really shows the beauty of the Oaxacan Green Dent corn and unakite stones. Light on the wrist, and easier to hook with the swiveling lobster claw clasp.
OGD-N Oaxacan Green Dent Corn necklace
Simple design but oh so lovely! I have not yet seen any stone that pairs so well with Oaxacan Green Dent corn than Unakite. It's said the stone aids in vision, stress relief, and peaceful sleep (and who doesn't need that?). You will be amazed how many pieces in your wardrobe this necklace will accent!
OGD-E Oaxacan Green Dent Corn earrings
These earrings are simple and fun and look great with any hair color - blonde, brunette, red-head, pinks, greens - whatever your style! I am careful to hand select each kernel to coordinate size, shape, and color. The leverback wires eliminate the extra step of applying an earnut for security.
OGD-NL Oaxacan Green Dent Corn Necklace WITH matching earrings
This necklace and earring set is an eye-catching design! The color and texture of each kernel is clearly visible, the varying shades of green highlighted by the beauty of the Unakite stones, with a glint of silver leaves separating the corn drops. I thought of this over 12 years ago, and it has remained a customer favorite. This is the ideal piece for "showing off" the amazing beauty of this centuries old corn.
