The Second Nature Project is a creative endeavor residing at the intersection of art, design and activism.  

Created by Jody Dunphy, each piece is handmade and designed to be a beautiful and functional vehicle for seed dispersal. The materials are thoughtfully chosen; they and virtually all are biodegradable, recycled or recyclable. Though unconventional, the main material for the jewelry is paper - paradoxically fragile and strong, two-dimensional and three-dimensional - paper provides an elegant, plant-able casing for the seeds. Wool felt, natural dyes, metal, cotton, silk and linen cord compliment the paper, providing contrast, color and structure. The seeds are thoughtfully chosen for heartiness, aesthetic and environmental value.   

  

SMALL DISC NECKLACE WITH FELT AND BRASS OR COPPER (Color combo options: Goldenrod felt bead and brass, Berry colored bead and copper, moss colored felt bead and brass)

These necklaces are made of stacked handmade paper discs that have clover and pollinator-friendly flower seeds embedded inside. The discs can be torn off and planted as you go about your day, elevating the necklace from a fashion accessory to a seed dispersal tool. The discs are strung on cotton cord that is hand dyed with onion skin and tea. Brass and felt components compliment the soft texture of the paper and give you a wearable keepsake even after all of the discs have been planted.

Materials: Handmade paper with seeds, linen thread, brass or copper, handmade felt bead strung on naturally-dyed cotton cord. Each necklace comes with planting instructions.

Length: Adjustable

Price: $68

The discs can be dispersed as you go about your way, given to a friend as a little gift or planted at home. Either way, these necklaces give you the opportunity to support our pollinator friends. The discs are strung on strong waxed linen thread. Brass components compliment the soft texture of the paper. It is solid and durable but light as a feather. Each necklace comes with planting instructions.
