Wild Thyme (Thymus serpyllum) - Copper Plated Necklace #1
This pendant contains one small sprig of Wild Thyme (Thymus serpyllum), dried and preserved in a clear dome of glass-like resin and then electroformed with a ring of patina'd copper.
Wild Thyme, like it's domestic counterpart, can be used as a culinary ingredient. The herb is prized among herbalists for it's soothing properties and is a common ingredient in cold-busting teas and cough drops. Spiritually, Wild Thyme has been considered a purifying herb since the days of the ancient Greeks, and was supposedly burned as an incense by temple keepers and priests to purify places of worship.
This specimen has been pressed and coated with a UV resistant finish prior to being encapsulated in resin.
The pendant measures 43mm long by 31mm wide - or approximately 1 3/4" by 1 1/4". This pendant is one of a kind and will be hand wrapped in white 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.
