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.

SHEPHERD’S PURSE (bursa pastoris)
origin: Cosmopolitan species
edible notes: Whole plant edible, in the mustard family
nutrition: Contains iron, calcium and vitamin C
in season: Early spring
medicinal use: Used to treat internal and external bleeding

Shepherd’s Purse is a heart-spattered plant that looks like a weed, ’tis true. It emerges from cracks and crevices and shows up all over the most rumpled parts of our city. This sturdy and resilient olde fellow has been medicinally relied upon for centuries and has picked up more then a few story-worthy names including ‘Witches Pouches’ and ‘Poor Man’s Pharmacy.’ We love it. In it we see tiny hearts and a bit of cheer.

- Recycled metal
- Botanical illustration engraved into the metal
- Intaglio engraving makes excellent wax seal
- 3 metal choices available
- Giftable packaging with a polishing cloth

    Beautiful but more delicate than expected.

    It’s beautiful and well made but it’s not as big or sturdy as I expected. Not as bulky and thick as expected, more delicate.

    Shipping was fast, less than 2 weeks. Considering that I live in Canada, that’s even better than expected.

    delicate but strong

    I needed a ring that looked delicate but could withstand the multiple times daily that I wash and sanitize my hands during this pandemic. This ring is perfect. It is beautiful and cheers me up whenever I see it. I wear it all the time. I also tried using it as a wax seal, and I was able to make a delicate little shepherd's purse shape.

    A beautiful handcrafted ring that I'll wear everyday!

    It's beautiful with a slightly antiqued look. And it's surprisingly lightweight so you can easily wear it every day!

    lovely, old and new at the same time

    fit perfectly, and the little hidden bee stamp inside showed the detail and the care that went into this piece. Have been pining for it for a while and am so happy that it's perched on my finger now :) thank you, it was a perfect birthday gift
