“...rural people exchanged bunches of Sichuan peppercorns as love tokens” and “the spice is still imbued with erotic symbolism because of the way its berries hang in pairs, like testicles.” - Fuchsia Dunlop

Note from Doris:This collaboration with 50Hertz is close to my heart, not just because I love good food but also because i’m a devoted fan and consumer of 50Hertz products. Keeping in mind how fragrant and fresh these peppers are, I designed each limited edition piece to showcase the beauty of Sichuan pepper. Each small branch and bud carries great potential and intense flavor, and my designs serve as a reminder to cherish the small joys in life. I hope you enjoy them!

Gorgeous and so fun to wear!

I love my firecracker earrings. Their unique design brings a pop of color and movement that elevates any ensemble. Kudos to 50Hertz and Amulet by D on this inspired collaboration!

Lovely way to celebrate spring

I bought earrings of both designs since I love red and green flower pepper. They are beautiful and meaningful — can’t wait to wear them! It’s a great idea to offer creations by an Asian American artist.
