Papaver Somniferum Bracelet - Some of My Favorite Things

36.00

The poppy is a stunning flower in all of its stages. The gorgeous green of the unopened bud is soft, fuzzy, ethereal, and gives one little idea of the incredible vibrancy within. The pod after blooming is sculptural, and when shaken becomes an instrument. The red flower in full bloom makes me think of passion, love, and life. Simultaneously, the poppy has a dark side, it’s history with humans is long and tumultuous. It is a symbol associated with pain relief, Morpheus, sleep, forgetting, and war.

About the series:

I love the intimacy of small works, especially those packed with meaning that can be held in your hand.  In this series, I set out to paint small scenes of symbols that have played an important role in my life, and also happen to be some of my favorite things (Sound of Music reference intended). I hope these small wearable pieces of art will act as reminders to explore the world, and see magic in the ordinary. I make each one of the pendants by hand starting with prints of the original watercolors. The glass cabochon slightly magnifies the work, giving the pendants an appearance from another time.

20 mm glass cabochon, zinc alloy, brass finish, adjustable cuff bracelet, Alexandra N Sherman initialed on bottom
