Kate Sydney Jewelry
PlantingSeed™ Potato Blight Non-Drought Earrings
Abounding Adornment features two stunning cuts of Sonoran dendritic jasper, bezel set in sterling silver and dangled from sterling chain. Two oval moss aquamarine stud earrings worn with or without the dangles. These cabochons highlight the external symptoms of late blight fungus, Phytophthora infestans in potatoes, that caused the great Irish famine.
PlantingSeed™ earrings were created to share awareness of the impact of drought and climate change. Potatoes need 1-2 inches of water per week, and the tubers do not grow well in hot conditions. Wearing these lovely earrings promotes a dialogue of climate change and water shortages suffered by many in the world today.
100% of the proceeds feed back into the PlantingSeed™ program of Grow More Foundation®, a 501(c)3 non-profit NGO that promotes the responsible use of science to solve our agricultural problems around the world. Grow More to feed the world.
