WILDFLOWERS Vintage Charm Necklace - GOLD
Our botanical antique button pendant is cast in bronze from an original Victorian button in our collection. This elegant relief-work stylized snowdrop button celebrates the Victorian love of garden and flowers. According to the Victorian language of flowers for courtship and love, snowdrop symbolized purity and hope. Layer with our other charms and talismans.
With this design, we celebrate Jane Eleanor Datcher, a botanist and the first Black woman to graduate with a degree from Cornell University. Her research involved a species of Anemone flower, a relative of the buttercup. In addition to her scientific contributions she was involved with the Colored Women's League, and 1892-founded club for educated African American women.
