Bloodroot is one of the first Appalachian wildflowers to pop in the Spring. Often pushing its way through frost, unfurling its snowy white petals in a defiant victory that says warmth is near. This handcrafted silver Bloodroot flower hasn’t quite opened up, it’s just made it’s way through the wintry forest floor and is waiting for the Sun to coax it into fullness.
Adorned with a verdant green peridot, evoking the energy of Spring, and sitting upon a bed of etched cursive, inspired by vintage natural history prints. The hairstick is crafted from solid sterling 8 gauge wire, and is 4" long. It is 3/4" at it's widest point.
The secret writing in the background is from an antique letter written in cursive; parts of the letter were etched into silver. Most of the letter cannot be deciphered, except for a date of 1st Mar 1890.
