Joie de Vivre jewelry

d r a k e  

Mandrakes gained fame as the shrieking roots in the Harry Potter series to revive one from the stony stare of a basilisk. According to folklore and biblical stories, the mandrake shrieks when dug up, causing death to whoever hears it. The root of the plant has hallucinogenic properties when consumed, and in the past, it was used as an anaesthetic for surgery. The mandrake in this 17" necklace is a charming pewter creation by Green Girl Studios, hanging among wooden beads, sterling silver, and lustrous Czech glass. Necklace fastens with a small sterling silver toggle.

Cost: $48.00 USD

Length: necklace - 17"


  • Green Girl Studios mandrake pewter pendant
  • wood beads
  • Czech glass beads
  • Miyuki Japanese glass seedbeads
  • sterling silver components
  • sterling silver toggle clasp
  • Accuflex nylon coated stainless steel beading cord

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be frayed or severed through hard jerks or prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying cord. Clean with a damp washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal.

The materials in this necklace are robust to tugs and pulls from most activities, however, the pewter mandrake pendant is a softer material so care should be taken to prevent hard impacts or hard sustained pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This shorter 17" necklace with pewter pendant works best with higher necklines and thinner shirt materials, like woven cotton or jersey, rather than chunky knits.
