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 not unwelcome.
30mm long by 24mm wide transparent teardrops overlaid with delicate flowers.
Choose from 1) Elderflowers (left) or 2) Poison hemlock (right in first pic and in second pic).
1) The Elderflower tree’s name is derived from the Anglo Saxon word "aeld," which translates to "fire." Known by many different names, elderflower is also referred to as the "Elder Mother," "Devil’s Eye" and the "Countryman’s Medicine Chest."
The flowers have a long-standing reputation as a treatment for all kinds of inflammatory and congestive conditions of the respiratory system. I use the flowers and the berries medicinally as well as in my art.
2) 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.
