Sunflower on Silver
$80.00
This unique pendant necklace features a Kansas sunflower cut from polished copper and mounted on a silver square. On a delicate silver chain, the copper comes from the original roof of the Kansas State Capitol. The Capitol roof was replaced in 2013 and the copper made available to the Kansas Historical Society and Kansas Historical Foundation for use in products to be sold in the Capitol Store. The wild sunflower, the vibrant Helianthus, was adopted in 1903 as the state flower. Today the plant has become an important crop and a popular symbol of the state.
