Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana) - Medium Oval #1
This pendant contains one small specimen of Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana), pressed and preserved in a glass-like pane of clear resin.
As the name implies, this plant is the wild counterpart to the cultivated Strawberry we all known and love. It forms sparse mats of low growing creeping plants and, in the height of spring, produces a medley of humble white flowers which will eventually give way to tiny strawberries, perfectly edible, though much smaller, and a bit more tart, than their domestic counterpart.
This specimen has been pressed and coated with a UV resistant finish prior to being encapsulated in resin.
The pendant measures 62mm by 45mm at it's widest points. 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.
