Night Thistle is a brand new design! Night Thistle is inspired by my home in the Rocky Mountains where the Summers are filled with giant thistles as tall as a person. There is something haunting and beautiful about a prehistoric plant covered in thorns capturing the endless attention of tiny bees and delicate butterflies. Insects of all varieties literally swarm the fluffy purple tops of the thistles. To capture their beauty, I’ve depicted the Night Thistle under a crescent moon and starry sky in the Art Deco style which influences me so greatly. Unbeknownst to most, the Thistle is actually a relative of the Sunflower. In ancient France, the thistle was called both the “Herb of Witches” as well as “Flower of the Sun”. They believed that witches could not look into the sun (as thistles do) so thought of them as an icon to ward off evil. To the Celts, the thistle was a symbol of durability, strength, determination, and devotion. To the Victorians, it was a talisman for warding off unwanted meddling; a symbol of protection. In metaphysical circles, thistles are used for protection, prosperity, endurance, and vitality.
Rollerball Necklaces are customizable in length and coupled with a sterling silver chain. Chains feature a .925 diamond cut. Full Metal Rollerball Necklaces come with a 2ml bottle wrapped in solid silver. Necklaces arrive with a roller since oils are the most common use, but are entirely optional and can be sealed with anything of your choosing! Necklaces are further customizable by removing the roller from the bottle and many customers have opted to use their necklaces for keepsakes, specimens, or memorials. Bottles are shown with an inert carrier, but essential oils are not included. Rollerball necklaces are refillable and coupled with a refill/care kit. If you would like to purchase more bottles in other sizes or colors find glass bottles here or consider adding extra crystal energy with a gemstone roller bottle here. Full Metal pieces are interchangeable with any bottle or necklace from Bead and Bones.
