Prairie Collection - Attica Short Necklace

215.00

A large glass window and integrated chain on this short necklace make it a bit different from the others. The 21” chain runs through a tube that was soldered into the pendant, seamlessly creating a unified piece.

The pendant is 1.5” x 1”. Entirely hand crafted from sterling silver and filled with pieces of dried sunflower. Green leaves, seeds not yet totally mature and covered in pollen, and the bright yellow petals are all showing off in this piece.

  • Common Sunflower: First cultivated by Native Americans, this plant does it all. Sunflower oil is extracted and used for cooking, paints, soaps, and hair oil. The seeds can be eaten and ground as a flour. Purple and black dye can be made from the seeds and yellow dyes from the flowers. Due to it being one of the lightest natural substances, having a specific gravity of 0.028 compared to 0.028 of cork, even the pith of the plant has been used as life preserver filler.
