The Mandrake


When it is still rooted in the earth, it is associacet with the forces of the underworls.
In medieval times it was belived that elaborate ritual precautions had to be taken when harvesting it. The worst danger came when the plant, dug out of the ground, gave a terrible shiek that could kill anyone who heard it, or drive them mad.
As a symbol, the mandrake is ambiguous. Give life and bring death; cure and poison. In general, it represents the forces that we humans shoul only approach with great caution.

Luz Negra is a small brand with reduced stock. All the pieces are handcrafted between Barcelona and the Basque Country. These jewels are made by hand and therefore aren´t uniformly identical, this is part of their charm. We always use sterling silver in closures and chains to avoid allegies. The pieces can be made of sterling silver, 18K 2mic gold plated brass or 18K 2mic gold plated sterling silver. The materials used in each piece is noted in the description.
