Flowering Judas // Hand-painted Watercolor Pendant


Sold Out

Redbud trees bloom in early summer, their flowers growing from tiny stems that sprout directly from the bark. They have been given the name “Flowering Judas,” as it’s been said in Christian mythology that Judas Iscariot, sick with remorse after betraying Christ in Gethsemane, hung himself from a redbud tree. Forever after, the tree’s pure white flowers were stained red, and refused to grow tall enough to allow another person to take their own life on its branches. 

This singular piece of wearable art contains an original watercolor illustration encased in high-quality, yellowing and scratch-resistant resin and set into a brass-tinted, nickel-free metal alloy bezel pendant. It hangs from a delicate 30” nickel free chain with a lobster clasp. 

Dimensions: 30mm Round 

Setting: Nickel-free metal alloy 

Chain: 30” nickel-free alloy


Each piece of watercolor jewelry is drawn and painted by hand, and no two will ever be alike. 

This setting and chain are made of a solid nickel-free alloy, but may cause a reaction when worn near the skin on some individuals. It is always a good idea to consult a doctor before purchasing if you are prone to metal allergies.
