The first time I learned about the Loblolly pine Pinus taeda -I was in the thick of my plant classes studying Landscape Architecture. One of the key characteristics of the Loblolly is that it is a diploxylon pine- with leaves that are stiffer and arranged in bundles of 2-3 needles.
Between landscape classes and 5-ish years working in garden beds I've gotten to know the pine needle pretty well- it was only a matter of time before it made it's way into our collection ;)
Those needles are what inspired these strips of metal that wrap around your wrist, starting out in a bundle on one end and coming back together in a cluster at the other.
This piece is lightweight, fits comfortably and stacks well with others.
Each piece varies slightly due to its handmade nature.
