Local artist, Beth K. Crane, has created a range of beautiful bespoke jewellery based on the museum’s historical collection. Our extensive range of apothecary bottles were the inspiration for these earrings. Belladonna is a poisonous plant that has been used as a medicine since ancient times. It is name comes from the “beautiful women” of Renaissance Italy, who took it to enlarge their pupils, which they found more alluring. Available in four colours (blue, green, red, and black) so you can truly ‘pick your poison’!
Each earring measures approximately 1.5 x 3 cm. The material is Perspex and it is translucent.
