No, no, go not to Lethe , neither twist Wolfs-bane, tight-rooted, for its poisonous wine; Nor suffer thy pale forehead to be kiss’d By nightshade.
--John Keats

After centuries of use as a poison and cosmetic, the medicinal uses of deadly nightshade were finally realized and made available to treat a variety of illnesses and ailments. Its medical applications include use as a pain reliever, muscle relaxer, anti-inflammatory, and as a treatment for whooping cough and hay fever. Deadly nightshade berries pose the greatest danger to children, as they are attractive and are deceptively sweet at first bite. Yet just two berries can kill a child who eats them, and it takes only 10 or 20 to kill an adult. Likewise, consuming even a single leaf can prove fatal to humans.

A large nightshade flower and two buds are preserved in copper, electroformed with a large phosphosiderite stone, chosen partly for its purple color with hints of yellow, and also because it is said to bring inspiration from higher realms of consciousness into our physical being.

This piece measures  about 2 inches in length and comes on a 24-inch antiqued copper chain. If you would prefer a different length of chain or leather cord, please include a note at checkout.

All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
