Perfect! The flower was so well handled and incased that it still looked freshly plucked.

Gorgeous necklace!! I’m going to be wearing this constantly! Chain is extremely prone to moving around so that the clasp shows in the front. I’ll have to work on a solution to that. But it’s a beautiful creation, and I’m excited to finally own one of Chaerea’s pieces after admiring them on Tumblr for so long.

Beautiful earrings and very well made with all the fine detailed work that would have to be put into these! I really love them and would purchase something similar in the future from here again.

These are so beautiful and delicate. I love them. And I had such nice correspondence and good service. Highly recommend chaerea.com. Lots of cool stuff.
Jewellery made with local plants of BC, Canada
I make jewellery primarily with real plants and/or with oriental paper.
Plants such as moss, lichen, carrot, cilantro, dill, salal, fern and others are used. They are from my garden and neighbourhood. I make collage pieces with them and oriental paper. Non-plant collages are made of Japanese Yuzen and Unryuu paper. The collage pieces are glued onto glass tiles or embedded in resin or bezel to make the necklaces or earrings. Each piece is hand made by myself and all are one of a kind.
This is the name of a Roman soldier Gaius Cassius Chaerea. He was a Praetorian Prefects who assassinated the notorious Julio-Claudian Emperor Gaius Caligula. He was then executed by Emperor Claudius.
I was fascinated with this story when young. I began using his name as an alias on the internet. So I used "chaerea" when I created my Etsy account, although at that time I was only interested in buying.
When I decided to open the shop I considered using a name more relevant to my jewellery but I decided to stay with Charea when I realized all my other accounts use that name.
All my products are hand made and original. Each is unique, not copied or replicated.
