Drop Earrings of King Billy Pine by Myrtle & Me (Made in Tasmania)

$29.00

The King Billy Pine is one of the defining features of the Tasmanian alpine landscape. Slow-growing and ancient, these mighty trees dot the mountains and plateaus as green conifers or with their haunting skeletal shapes. Being highly sensitive to heat and fire, the skeletal remains, which can stand for hundreds of years, are a great reminder of the fragility of the wild places. This tree was captured while hiking Frenchmans Cap in the wild western wilderness in Tasmania. The band of the Milky Way arching across the sky, accenting the stark shapes of the King Billy made for an unforgettable scene. 

Handmade in Tasmania's beautiful Meander Valley
This unique earring design is created from our photograph of a king billy pine, growing at Frenchman's Cap (Tasmania, Australia)
