Janet Mavec, a jewelry designer whose pieces are inspired by nature, works from her Bird Haven Farm and gardens in Pottersville, N.J., where the flowers, herbs and vegetables pose for her artistry, mostly in gold-plated brass. (The farm is open to visitors on select days.) But new to her line is chocolate: She uses lemon verbena that she cultivates to infuse bars of dark chocolate with delicate, aromatic floral notes. The chocolate is 72 percent cacao from the Dominican Republic and comes wrapped in pretty, leafy paper. It’s gift-worthy for Mother’s Day (don’t give just one).
