American Orchid Society Project
Don and I have been very fortunate over the past few years to have cultivated a wonderful relationship with the American Orchid Society. One outgrowth of this relationship has been a new line of Sterling Silver charms called AOS Charm  Braceletthe "AOS Winner's Circle". These charms were sculpted using AOS award winning flowers as the models.

With the purchase of any of these charms comes a small card which has a picture of the award winning flower as well as a brief history of the awards it's won and it's origins. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of these charms will be donated back to the American Orchid Society.

The charm bracelet pictured is also part of the "AOS Winners Circle" line. It features 12 gauge jump ring construction, lending itself to easy attachment and rearrangement of charms as well as a very strong framework to hold these beautiful miniature works of art. Also features a large Infinity clasp making it easy to put on and secure to wear anywhere.

  1. Your ghost orchid jewelry is exquisite - I, too, am fascinated with the ghost orchid. I was fortunate to be present for the first blooming of the "super ghost" of Blair Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in 2007 on my broke all records for number of blooms, height, number of bloomings in a season, etc. etc. and continues to surprise its observers.

    As an author, I stalked that beauty three months each year and was inspired to write Ghost Orchid, a mystery of love, lies and redemption wrapped in a ghost orchid. NPR reviews praised the beauty of the Everglades that shines through every page; the ghost orchid is the heart and soul of the story.

    Perhaps we could partner in some way to bring the Everglades experience to people not generally in the eco circle, but who enjoy a good story and will feel compelled to seek out the ghost orchid and protect its environment. ISBN 978-1-60318-136-5
