This image I recently found while researching more antiquated science texts like the gessner book i blogged about earlier, which inspired my first sterling silver piece of jewelry. This illustration is from The Naples Dioscorides circa 625 a Greek herbal text! Crazy! I had no idea that illustrated texts dated so far back. This is a mandrake.


  1. great inspiration! I love your shrink plastic pieces. The colour and character of your images really appeal to me. I love your cabachon necklace and the fox necklace too. Very cute!

  2. grasp your mandrakes firmly
