This pendant depicts Persephone, the Greek goddess whom Hades captured and made his queen. Persephone was the goddess of spring and in agreement with Persephone's mother Demeter, Hades allowed her to return to the world for half of each year. This is why we have the seasons. Persephone is often depicted as the bridge between the light and the darker forces. The design is reminiscent of an antique urn.
Banned in the early Twentieth Century, Absinthe has taken on a mythic reputation in our modern world. The Absinthe Fairy is said to bring on not only reckless abandon, but hallucinations and visions in revelers who partake of this mysterious elixir. Traditionally made from anise oil, Absinthe has a higher alcohol content than Whiskey -- up to 75 percent (144 proof. ) Absinthe was especially popular among the Bohemian set at the turn of the Twentieth Century.
This Absinthe piece is made in the Fallen Angel Brass studios and sealed with a non toxic matte lacquer for durability. It is completely made in the USA and contains no lead, nickel or cadmium.
Painting is Viktor Oliva's "The Absinthe Drinker" (1901)

Fallen Angel Brass is available exclusively through this Etsy shop.
My items are not purchased from a wholesaler, but are created specifically for my shop in collaboration with American metal manufacturers and our New England master finisher. The small, family run businesses of this region take great pride in their craftsmanship and materials, under strict supervision of U.S. metal and labor regulations. No lead, cadmium or nickel is used and all labor is fairly paid and safely conducted in highly regulated working conditions in compliance with the US Fair Labor Standards Act. Your supplies from my shop are not "off the rack," but are exclusive and unique. I am proud to offer this product to the Etsy community.
My pewter and brass are finished by one very small New England family business, not a factory. Each piece of Fallen Angel Brass is hand rubbed twice and finished with a non toxic lacquer for durability. Variations in the dark finish are by design and part of the unique Fallen Angel Brass patina. I strive for uniformity and consistency, but also value the variation that comes from the one-man process that creates my finish. With wear, my finish will age, but in a pleasing antiqued way. My brass is meant to be worn and aged further with use.
