The Weird Sisters refers to a specific group of plants that are highly toxic: Belladonna, Henbane, Mandrake and Datura. All of these have a long and often creepy history, and together they are the subject of many books and pieces of art.


Henbane has been a facsinating study for herbalists and pagans for centuries. The plant has been used for anesthesia during surgery (18th and 19th century), and was used in a variety of preparations in the Middle Ages. Unfortunately, many of the patients didn't survive, not because of the surgery, but because of the Henbane! They even used it in child delivery for a time.


These earrings are sublimation printed in our studio, from vintage (19th century) botanical drawings. We format the art work, and I added a small, light skull and crossbones to add a little Gothic flare.


The second image shows the earrings with a U.S. quarter for scale.


French style ear wires in surgical steel.
