Borage (Borago officinalis) - Copper Plated Necklace #1
$34.00 Sold Out
This pendant contains one small sprig of Borage (Borago officinalis), dried and preserved in a clear dome of glass-like resin and then electroformed with a ring of patina'd copper.
It is a commonly held belief by both folk practitioners and among modern gardeners, that Borage has the power to confer happiness to all that observe it. Looking at it's iconic, star-shaped, pastel colored nodding flowers, I find myself hard pressed to disagree. Borage is also an edible flower, and is a common ornament in summer-time drinks and summer salads.
This specimen has been pressed and coated with a UV resistant finish prior to being encapsulated in resin.
The pendant measures 43mm long by 31mm wide - or approximately 1 3/4" by 1 1/4". This pendant is one of a kind and will be hand wrapped in white tissue paper and hemp twine 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.
