Many Pennonia inks are named after past experiences, moments and events from our childhood. In the case of Dandelion the ink brought back memories of me and my cousins playing on the village fields collecting dandelions in order to make “jewelry” for ourselves. The Hungarian name for the plant is quite descriptive as it literally translates to “Children's chain grass”.
The stem of the dandelion is hollow so if you want, you can chain them together to create necklaces, earrings or other decorations. If you are skilled, like my cousin, dandelion can also be used to make beautiful crowns too!
To top it all off, it’s also really fun to blow of the seeds after the flowers have bloomed!
