Catnip (Nepeta cataria) - Small Copper Prism Necklace #1
This pendant contains one small sprig of Catnip (Nepeta cataria), dried and preserved in a prism-shaped casing of glass-like resin and topped by earthy, patina'd electroplated copper.
Few in the world are likely unfamiliar with Catnip, the iconic mint plant known for the euphoric effect the herb's scent has on most domestic cats, as well as many wild cat species. In addition to this, the herb was traditionally used in western herbalism to treat a variety of ailments.
This specimen has been pressed and coated with a UV resistant finish prior to being encapsulated in resin.
The pendant measures 54mm long by 33mm wide, and 20mm thick. This pendant is one of a kind and will be wrapped in 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.
