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. This is a handmade piece, and imperfections are expected and not unwelcome.
From my new line of black backed gothic-inspired botanical pieces: a silver plated brass teardrop, 35mm long, with pressed poison hemlock florets. Finished with a silver circle and nickel free, iron alloy chain.
Conium maculatum is the plant that killed Theramenes, Socrates and Phocion. In ancient Greece, hemlock was used to poison condemned prisoners. Conium comes from the Ancient Greek κώνειον – kṓneion: "hemlock". This may be related to konas (meaning to whirl), in reference to vertigo, one of the symptoms of ingesting the plant.
Second photo is a picture of a slightly different piece being worn, using the same bezel, but with a different botanical and a different orientation.
