Ferns symbolise eternal youth. To the indigenous Maori of New Zealand, ferns represent new life and new beginnings. To the Japanese, ferns symbolise family and hope for future generations. According to Victorians, the fern symbolizes humility and sincerity.
A gold coloured wire teardrop surrounds a segment of dried fern leaf, which is then preserved in resin. The teardrop is then fastened to a gold coloured stainless steel long V hook, to create a truly elegant 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.
