The way a crow shook down on me
The dust of snow from a hemlock tree
Has given my heart a change of mood
And saved some part of a day I had rued.
Ancient Greeks used poison hemlock to execute criminals and other state prisoners; one of the most famous is Socrates. The typical symptoms for poisoning in humans include pupil dilation, dizziness, and trembling followed by slowing of the heartbeat, paralysis of the central nervous system, and muscle paralysis.
This large branch of poison hemlock has been carefully preserved and electroformed in 100% copper. It is adorned with moss agate as well as moonstone to represent the green and white colors present in the plant and its flowers.
This piece measures just under 2.5 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.
