This is in the original “Cross” style of my first piece and of “Family Tradition:” stained flat driftwood with interesting cross pieces. It has been sold, by I can make you a similar one based on the seeds I have.
Seeds: Sea Purse (Dioclea Reflexa), Sea Heart (Entada Giga), Jamaica Walnuts, P. copaifera pod, lovely black Oxy seeds (Oxyrhynchus trinervius), Acacia Tree thorns, Mexican Bird of Paradise pods, Turitella shells, and Manicheel sea beans.
Invitation: Keep your eye on your goal even when things get complicated. Hold yourself kindly.
I have had the center, spiky, elongated pod for years. I love. It is a Pithecoctenium crucigerum, also known as “monkey comb.” I wish I could find more of these.
Hanging pods: Royal Poinciana (Delonix regia) – Known as Woman’s Tongue (Malinche Tree);
Sea Heart (Entada giga)
Ox Eye; Almond Seeds
Prioria Copafeira (hanging in center)
Invitation: Let your heart be your guide. Seek balance. Hang loose.
