Purslane Botanical Necklace

$108.00 - $116.00

Often times our most wonderful discoveries are merely the recognition of what is before us – and in this case under foot! Our botanical jewelry collection was inspired by our unearthing of the usefulness of invasive weeds and pays homage to its winged cultivator.

PURSLANE (portulaca oleracea)
origin: Cosmopolitan Species
edible notes: Leaf and stem, slightly tangy
nutrition; Iron, Omega 3 fatty acids
in season: All year
medicinal use: Antiseptic

Purslane is a plump, rambling succulent with gentle yellow flowers that open only when the sun shines – rather ill-fitted to being called a weed. It is salty and crunchy – a satisfying edible (and rich in Omega 3 fatty acids!) that makes a great addition to salads. It certainly takes over, but our mouths and tummies are happy for this.
