Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana) - Small #1
This pendant contains one small frond of Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana), dried and preserved in a prism-shaped casing of glass-like 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 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.
