This exhibition features faux jewelry made exclusively from dried plant material. It is an art form that was introduced to this region at the 1996 Philadelphia Flower Show. There are numerous thematic categories and specifications. The artist must replicate wearable-size jewelry and create the illusion that these designs are made of precious metal and gems. Any dried plant material can be used-flowers, foliage, seeds, pods, peas, beans, vines, or twigs. The dried plants are then assembled and painted-most often with nail polish, gold leaf, or spray paint-anything that will best reproduce the original materials.

For example, a gold chain might be constructed of small painted lentils or miniscule celery seeds. Like gardening, the creation of a successful work of art requires creativity in the selection of material, skilled craftsmanship, attention to detail, and great patience.
