Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) - Chunky Statement Piece #1
This large, chunky statement piece pendant contains one sprig of Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea), dried and preserved in a prism of clear, glass-like resin.
Foxglove is a plant of many facets - on the one hand, a beautiful, charming garden plant, ecologically important to bees, who have been known to find shelter in the plant's bell-like flowers from rain, and steeped in folklore, associated strongly with the fae folk. On the other hand, Digitalis is both a healer and a poisoner, rife with the chemical digoxin, which has both historically and contemporarily been used as a treatment for heart disorders but is also more than capable of doing harm through those same mechanisms.
The specimen has been dried thoroughly and coated in a UV resistant finish prior to being embedded in epoxy resin. The cap and findings are made of sturdy stainless steel.
This pendant is one of a kind and will be wrapped in a manner similar to the last photo in the listing 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.
