lovingly handmade by myself:
Item name: "SCOTTISH THISTLE
*See below for the story behind the Scottish Thistle, the flower of Scotland:))*
Inspiration - Living in Scotland, thistles are everywhere!! they are so beautiful:)
Description: This is the first time I have ever dissected a thistle, and what an amazing dare I say it .... weed!! Its truly magnificent and such fun to dissect despite getting jagged a few times!! I got a few of the prickles then added to UV resistant, non toxic clear resin, they look amazing magnified under the crystal clear resin domes. The domes measure approx 20mm. I then attached to silver plated cufflinks
*The thistle may only be a humble weed, but it is the emblem of the Scottish nation. The prickly-leaved, pink or purple-flowered ‘Scotch’ thistle is, along with tartan, perhaps the most identifiable symbol of all things Scottish. But how did the thistle earn its place in the heart of the Scots?
In truth, no-one knows, but legend has it that a sleeping party of Scots warriors were saved from ambush by an invading Norse army when one of the attackers trod on a thistle with his bare feet. His cries raised the alarm, the roused Scots duly defeated the invaders, and the thistle was adopted as the symbol of Scotland. Unfortunately, there is no historical evidence for this, but Scots, like other nations, love a good story.
