We are pleased to introduce the Snowflake Bentley 2022 Earrings! Every year, Danforth Pewter releases a much-anticipated snowflake design based on one of Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley's 5000 original photographs of individual snow crystals. Each ornament and piece of jewelry is carefully crafted by hand from the finest pewter in our Middlebury workshop.
W.A. Bentley was a Vermont farmer who adapted a microscope to a bellows camera and became the first person to photograph a single snowflake. In doing so, he astonished the world with his discovery that no two snowflakes are alike. The collection is now maintained by the Jericho, Vermont Historical Society, who commissions Danforth Pewter each year to create limited-edition products based on his original photograph.
A portion of all sales supports the Jericho Historical Society. The Snowflake Bentley 2022 design is also available as a necklace, Christmas ornament, scatter pin, and zipper pull. Because it is a commissioned piece, it is not available wholesale, and cannot be discounted or included in any promotion.
