Briar rose. Rose gold. Rose thorn.

$120.00

Based on tale #50, 'Little Briar-Rose' or 'Sleeping Beauty', I offer a cast sterling silver rose gold plated rose thorn. Hand collected in Denver, this little thorn has significant detail for so small a piece. Perfectly paired with a contrasting darkened sterling silver cable chain, this lovely hangs over the heart for protection.

As a girl, my favorite tale was 'Sleeping Beauty', as I imagined immortal sleep and thick thorns. The image of when the Princess pricks her finger on the spindle has long stayed with me into my adulthood.

Thorn is half an inch wide and long. The chain length is 16 inches long in the images.

This listing is for *one necklace*

From 'Briar-Rose' (Sleeping Beauty) by the Brother's Grimm.

"And, in the very moment when she felt the prick, she fell down upon the bed that stood there, and lay in a deep sleep. And this sleep extended over the whole palace; the King and Queen who had just come home, and had entered the great hall, began to go to sleep, and the whole of the court with them. The horses, too, went to sleep in the stable, the dogs in the yard, the pigeons upon the roof, the flies on the wall; even the fire that was flaming on the hearth became quiet and slept, the roast meat left off frizzling, and the cook, who was just going to pull the hair of the scullery boy, because he had forgotten something, let him go, and went to sleep. And the wind fell, and on the trees before the castle not a leaf moved again.

But round about the castle there began to grow a hedge of thorns, which every year became higher, and at last grew close up round the castle and all over it, so that there was nothing of it to be seen, not even the flag upon the roof. But the story of the beautiful sleeping "Briar-Rose," for so the princess was named, went about the country, so that from time to time kings' sons came and tried to get through the thorny hedge into the castle.

But they found it impossible, for the thorns held fast together, as if they had hands, and the youths were caught in them, could not get loose again, and died a miserable death."
