Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima) - Small #5
$25.00 Sold Out
This pendant contains one small sprig of Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima), dried thoroughly and preserved permanently in a small point of glass-like resin. Sweet Alyssum - from the Greek word alyssum, meaning “without madness” - was once believed to have the capacity to cure rabidness and soothe feral animals, owing to it’s association with gentleness and calmness of spirit. In occult contexts it is said to ward off glamours and hexes, and in the language of flowers, the flower represents “worth beyond beauty”.
This sprig was grown by me, organically and from seed, with lots of love and care in my garden.
The pendant measures about 44mm by 7mm or 1 3/4" by 5/16", and all metal used is hypoallergenic stainless steel.
The specimen has been dried thoroughly and coated in a UV resistant finish prior to being embedded in epoxy resin. The cap and findings are made of sturdy stainless steel.
This pendant is one of a kind and will be wrapped in a manner similar to the last photo in the listing and come with a small tag stating the name of the species, stamped by hand and typed on a vintage typewriter.
Please let me know at checkout if you have a necklace length preference! Otherwise I will include an 18" chain by default.
