P-Wormwood (from the Poison Collection)

Sterling silver pendant with jade tip, back bail, and hidden poison compartment…Inspired by the infamous silvery-green ornamental which was used even in Biblical times to describe the epitome of bitterness.   Wormwood was once believed to be psychedelic due to its chemical thujone, but there is debate about the intensity of its mind-altering effects.  Wormwood is a critical ingredient in the production of Absinthe, a spirit especially popular amongst Parisian artists and writers at the end of the 19th century, but Absinthe with thujone is currently banned in the United States.
