Bittersweet Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara) - Prism #4
This pendant contains one small sprig of Bittersweet Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara), otherwise known as Woody Nightshade. As the name "Nightshade" implies this brightly colored member of the tomato family is a common poisonous herb. During the Middle Ages of Europe, the herb was thought to be a strong protection against hexes, and garlands of the plant were often hung on doorways and around the necks of livestock to protect them.
The specimen has been pressed dry and coated with a UV resistant finish before being embedded in resin for maximum protection against damage.
The pendant measures about 28mm by 31mm (1 1/8" by 1 1/4") and approximately 20mm deep.
Please let me know at checkout if you have a necklace length preference! Otherwise I will include an 18" chain by default.
