Monstera Ornament

October 2008
14 karat green gold

For the occasion of my friend Nikki's wedding to her husband Doug, she sent out invitations and RSVP cards with a stylized illustration of a monstera as the main design element. The tropical plant is abundant in her and my home stateof Hawaiʻi where the wedding was held, so it was certainly appropriate for the event.

As my wedding present to the bride and groom, I used 14k green gold (because plants are green) to make this Christmas ornament from the invitation's design. My hope is that every year when they hang this ornament on their tree, seeing the design will remind them of the excitement and joy that they felt on their wedding day.
