Bronze Mandrake Coin Pendant
Mandrake is a plant associated with magic and wizardry, used as an amulet for protection. I made this piece after finding a potted plant at the local nursery. Its a rather inocuous looking plant, for all the strange legends that accompany it - with little purple and yellow flowers and a root system that really does look oddly humanoid.
This pendant is made of pure bronze, from a hand carved mold. The pendant features hallmarks of a handmade item: fingerprints impressed into the back, little cracks and crevaces - not defects, but marks left to replicate ancient coins.
Note: All of our items are hand crafted from the finest materials available. It is our wish to create goods that will last several lifetimes and be cherished by our great grand kids! Also be aware that each piece is made by hand, meaning little differences may occur, like a tiny air bubble or seam line may be visible. These variances should not be viewed as flaws, but as evidence they are a handmade product.
This piece measures about 26mm wide.
