Real salamander and tree lichen silver necklace

$92.00

All items are handmade and are one of a kind from foraged wild and domesticated plants. I collect whatever is in season on my daily walks, usually in the Philadelphia area. The composition of my pieces range from traditional (using whole, pressed flowers and leaves) to more abstract. Each piece involves laying jewelry-grade resin in several layers, over several sittings.

All handmade jewelry will have natural imperfections, and thats what gives each piece their alluring details, originality and soulful nature. Variations and "imperfections" are expected, and not unwelcome.

Huge 60mm silver plated circle with a real dried salamander (found and foraged in mid-PA by my mother in law) and dried tree lichen foraged ethically from the Scottish Highlands. Salamanders have held potent and weird powers for a lot of cultures: Medieval Europeans believed they were fire proof. The Ashmole Bestiary, made in the High Middle Ages in England stated that "The salamander lives in the midst of flames without pain and without being consumed; not only does it not burn, but it puts out flames."

This is an utterly one of a kind piece that is durable, weird, and beautiful.
