Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) - Hair Pin Medium #1
This pendant contains one small specimen of Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), dried thoroughly and preserved in a clear point of glass-like resin.
Wormwood, characterized by it's deeply earthy smell and velvety silver leaves, is perhaps best known as the main ingredient in the hallucinogenic alcoholic beverage "absinthe", aka "The Green Fairy". However, in larger doses, it is also known as a powerful poisonous herb.
The resin piece itself measures about 45mm long by 13mm wide and is attached to a standard 2" long "ballet pin" or "u-pin" for easy hair insertion.
The piece is lightweight and should fit securely any bun or updo for medium or long length hair.
If you have particularly long or thick hair and think you may need a few extra u-pins I'd be happy to send along some complimentary un-embellished pins for you.
(Please note that the hair pins worn in the example photo are not the exact pin you will receive; the pin you will receive has never been worn).
