Chokecherry (Prunus virginiana) - Copper Plated Necklace #1
This pendant contains one small sprig of Chokecherry (Prunus virginiana), dried and preserved in a clear dome of glass-like resin and then electroformed with a ring of patina'd copper.
Chokecherry, also called Bird Cherry, is a variety of cherry native to the northeast United States. It produces a stalk of white flowers in the spring and a vivid spike of red berries in the autumn. The cherries themselves are bitter, but can be dried or made into jam to make them more palatable, making them a valuable source of wild food.
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.
