Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima) - Small #5
This pendant contains one small floret of Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima), dried and preserved in a prism-shaped casing of glass-like resin.
Sweet Alyssum - from the Greek word alyssum, meaning “without madness” - was once believed to have the capacity to cure rabidness and soothe feral animals, owing to it’s association with gentleness and calmness of spirit. In occult contexts it is said to ward off glamours and hexes, and in the language of flowers, the flower represents “worth beyond beauty”.
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 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.
