Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) - Chunky Statement Necklace #1
This large, chunky statement piece pendant contains one sprig of Valerian (Valeriana officinalis), dried and preserved in a prism of clear, glass-like resin.
Valerian is a dreamy, sweet smelling summer herb, traditionally used both as component of perfume for it's sweet, floral scent, as well as a powerful sleep aid in traditional western herbalism. The herb has been dried thoroughly and preserved in a pane of crystal clear resin.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: The modeled shot at the second to last photo is not the exact pendant you will receive but one of the exact same dimensions, in order to give you a sense of it's scale.
