The Subrosa Pin
This listing is for a ONE OF A KIND pin, a new design, but still inspired by the sentiment from The Mother's Collection.
A "Rose Stone", containing a dried rose petal set under glass, in a stamped scalloped bezel, is resting between two hand formed stamped balls. It is bordered by sterling silver roped wire as well as a round wire with angeled stamped design details. It was then given a patina to bring out thosev details, and to give the piece an antiqued look. Then given a lavender oil and wax coating to keep the patina in place and satisfy the senses. This pin is a 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 1" tall, and 3/4" 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 it 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.
