Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) - Small Copper Prism Necklace #4
This pendant contains one small sprig of Valerian (Valeriana officinalis), dried and preserved in a prism-shaped casing of glass-like resin and topped by earthy, patina'd electroplated copper.
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.
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.
