Violet (Viola sororia) - Large #1
$25.00 Sold Out
This pendant contains one small specimen of Violet (Viola sororia) dried thoroughly and preserved in a clear point of glass-like resin.
An incredibly iconic staple of spring in the US and the native range of this flower, the common lawn flower is considered to be a symbol of sapphic love; based on a poem by the Greek poet Sappho, who described herself and her lover as wearing garlands of the flower, it became a common practice especially among lesbian and bisexual women in the early 1900's to exchange the flowers with their lovers as a romantic gesture.
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.
The pendant measures approximately 15mm wide by 75mm long.
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.
