Lost & Resurrected Collection || September 2023

Hitting the shop’s shelves tomorrow, friday September 29th at 6pm CET!

We wanderers on this earth, oscillating between the love of the moon and the departure of insatiable beats of time.
There is no moment that isn’t as sweet as a stolen kiss, and as harsh as a breath of dust.
In a second that ivy shoot has covered the bare wall in green.
We wanderers on this earth, who observe with love the little things that change, with a tremor the little things that go.
A sweet memory is lost and faded, another small miracle will rise again, resurrected, and raise us to creators of life, care keepers of love, witnesses of loss and rebirth.

There’s a strange kind of comfort in going back to known shapes.
Working with familiar botanicals, rearranging past designs, is like playing it safe to get back in the swing of the craft.
And there’s this whimsical *something* in the air of September that calls to be captured in what I create.
Words don’t come easy to describe what it is, but *there it is* nonetheless and I know you feel it too.
I’m again putting together a small collection, something my heart ached to do for what felt like an infinite absence from the bench.

I hope you love this one.

Forest Nymph earrings

I crafted 3 pairs of unique dangles crafted for the woodland lovers, for those who crave the green of moss and the calming silence of a misty forest.

The earrings were born as an ode to the sweet season of rain and gold, as well as a gentle call for all unrecognised forest nymphs and witches out here! I got you covered!

They feature natural rutilated quartz and are entirely handfabricated from scratch.

Woodland brooches

Spice up your Autumn wordrobe with arboreal and woodland inspired viking style brooches to go along your favourite shawls and sweaters!

This limited series of 5 embodies the magic of the whimsical month of September, each featuring a gemmy cut of natural peridot and a touch of warmth with the mixed metal component: the brass rod, which adds the bonus of additional durability and strenght.

  • Decomposer Recomposer
  • Wild roses
  • Silene
  • Lush living
  • Ivy

Naturalist Polaroids necklaces

A long lasting frame of brief moments, ephemeral critters fixed in time in their silver suit, like a polaroid, a memory to be kept close to heart.
A drop of moss agate hangs below, faceted in its deep and rich hues of lichen livery.

The organic elements are meticulously sawed and carved out of recycled .925 silver (20 gauge sheet), and the bits are textured, arranged and soldered onto a 16 gauge wire frame, to eventually be refined and finished for an elegant and comfortable wear. The pendants are mounted on 16” chains.

  • Thistle
  • Wild roses
  • Fern Walker
  • Meadow
  • Butterfly

Mycorrhizal Afterlife series

A moist love whispers in the misty September mornings, of little life awakening to the beat of falling drops: snails, mycelium, unsheathed fern blades.
Let the dance of mycorrhizal afterlife begin, with tangles of roots wrapped around your fingers and wrist!

The main body of these jewels, the tree stump, is sculpted in wax by me with precision hand tools.
Each is made unique and no reproductions are created.
The originals are then casted in sterling silver by professionist casters in my area.
I take the work back from there, removing casting marks, sanding the rough edges, smoothly setting the gems in place.

The bracelet features an apple-green peridot teardrop, and a peculiar quartz point with chloride inclusions.

The frog ring has its own quartz point too, and measures a size US 6.

The snail ring has 3 cabochons set: the focal point is kyanite, followed by tourmaline and a tiny emerald from vintage stash. It fits a size 7.25.

Songs of Autumn rings

Songs of Autumn are written in the soft September breeze.
Each leaf turning yellow, an ascending note!
The rain is compositor, tapping and dripping and setting the tone.
A fast beat of feathered wings, the rhythm.
Bass is thunder.
And the orange of the ripening apple, has the sweetest chord encoded in its juice.

Each of these rings is handmade with traditional metalsmithing techniques.
The round frames are carefully hammered by hand out of robust 16 gauge sterling silver wire.
The band is twisted 12 gauge wire of recycled sterling silver.
The organic elements, the leaves, fungi, flowers, fruits and critters, which are meticulously sawed, carved and shaped out of .925 silver.

Sizes are reported according to the US ring chart.
Please keep in mind that the following sizes were marked exactly as measured on the mandrel.

  • 1. Hawthorn: size 5.75.
  • 2. Brambleberries: size 6.25.
  • 3. Oak: size 7.75.
  • 4. Mushroom and moss agate: size 5.5.
  • 5. Forget me not: size 8.5.
  • 6. Fungi and butterfly: size 8.75.
  • 7. Moth on brambleberry flower: size 8.25.

Decomposer Recomposer breast pins

…and last but surely not least…

The definitive pin for your forest hikes: if prehnite and silver could become a moss carpet and fragrant mycelium, I might as well celebrate success with these 5 exquisite little ones.

The green of spruce leaves gently dangling below hand forged fungi and ferns.

I hope this collection acts as a portal to a forested place of quiet, whatever that is like for your soul.

Mine is somewhere underneath the canopy of stretched beech trees, where the sun rays rarely reach the understory and the smells are rich with a hint of straw, and the sounds come soft and sparkling as they do in dreams. No complexity feels overwhelming, yet no detail goes unnoticed.

I hope to find you there, with the woodpecker and the honey fungi, making friends with the trees and growing some roots of our own, too ♥

P.S. Don’t forget to set your alarms for tomorrow, Friday, September 29th at 6 pm CET 🌿

Yours truly


Hi and welcome! My name is Alea and I am the one girl behing Pluvial Fern. Everything you see here, every piece of jewelry, every photograph, every post, is the result of my work. My sincere hope is to transmit you those values and inspirations that are the deep engines that aninated Pluvial Fern in the first place! ~ I've always love arts. Since childhood I used to spend a lot of time into wood working, book stitching, sculpting, painting and more. But being a full time student never allowed me to deepen in one of these crafts. This was until I "accidentally" discovered metalsmithing: it was love at first sight; a whole new world of opportunities unfolding in my yet inexpert hands! Being a 100% self taught maker, it was extremely tough at the beginning, and - I'm not gonna lie - frustrating once in a while. But after months of researches and over a year of practice, I finally managed to become familiar and master this medium. That's how "Pluvial Fern" was born. Fine metals and natural gems are the most duttile materials in terms of possibilities and allow me to transfer my love for wilderness and Earth into wearable art. It's exactly because of my love for the Planet, that I donate 5% of my annual income to nature conservation! My hope is to give you the best experience as customers, as well as to leave you with a piece of jewelry that communicates the passion and gratitude that went into creating it. And maybe, that tiny treasure will act as a reminder of the astounding beauty of Nature that we're all so intrinsically connected to.
