Because lilacs have one of the earliest bloom times, they symbolise spring and renewal. They're also a common symbol of love and confidence.
Valerian can symbolise calmness, strength, and readiness or awareness of what is to come.
A muddled mixture of dried red valerian buds and Californian lilac buds fill a silver coloured stainless steel wire crescent mine, encased in resin, to create a dainty pocket of nature. Fastened to a silver coloured stainless steel wire hoop, to create a simple, set of earrings.
I make each piece of jewellery myself, from hand picking the flowers, to the rigorous drying process, to immortalising them in resin. As they are handmade there will be difference between each each flower and piece, also the nature of flowers I am unable to replicate a previous item exactly. There may also be a couple of air bubbles in some pieces, this is due to some flowers releasing air during the curing process.
I post all orders first class with Royal Mail, in cardboard boxes, filled with biodegradable padding, wrapped in tissue paper. Everything is recyclable and kind on the environment.
