Woody Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara) - Medium Oval #2
This pendant contains one small sprig of Wood Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara), dried and preserved in a clear vane of glass-like resin.
As the name "Nightshade" implies this brightly colored member of the tomato family is a common poisonous herb. During the Middle Ages of Europe, the herb was thought to be a strong protection against hexes, and garlands of the plant were often hung on doorways and around the necks of livestock to protect them.
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.
