Seeds as Jewels

Sometimes you purchase seeds because, you know, they serve a specific purpose.  Food? Absolutely.  Animal fodder? Sure thing.  Pollinator attractant?  Now we're talking.

And sometimes, that purpose is for...decoration.  While these seeds are grown for their pepitas (pumpkin seed meats) I have visions of making gorgeous jewelry out of them.  The edges are sparkly silver, for goodness sake.  If that doesn't cry out to be made into earrings, I don't know what does.

*You can find your own packet of Silver Edged Squash seeds at Native Seed Search.*
