The Double Strength Rose Pin
This listing is for a ONE OF A KIND pin, based off of the "Double Strength ring" from The Mother's Collection.
A small "Rose Stone", containing a dried rose petal set under glass, is resting bordered by two varying gauges of sterling silver roped wire. It was then given a patina to bring out the hand stamped details, and to give the piece an antiqued look. They are then given a lavender oil and wax coating to keep the patina in place and satisfy the senses. This ring is a very simple, heartfelt talisman of eternal love and beauty.
Roses have long been used as a symbol for love, but it goes much further. Yes, in mythology, roses tended to be associated with the Greek Goddess of love, Aphrphrodite and Venus. In alchemical text and art they are depicted with seven petals as a symbol of inclusion, universal understanding and order. In the tarot the flower of a rose indicates promise, new beginnings, and hope. Red roses specifically for an enduring love.
In these talismans I've created, I want to pull from all of these sentiments. Talismans for a loving, balanced, inclusive, new beginning. These are the jewels for the special goddesses in our lives however they take shape<3
This pendant measures 3/4" tall, and 5/8" wide.
It comes with a single central pin back setting, with a pull lock pin back for extra security, to insure you will never lose your new heirloom handmade pin <3
As a side note, due to the natural and delicate nature of the rose petal it is not recommended to wear this pin underwater/allow prolonged wear in moisture. The setting will come to you air tight, however over time with constant wear stones on all pieces may shift, and it is always wise to not press ones luck and allow delicate and treasured pieces to receive only minimal time in the elements.
