Language of Flowers, 2012
The language of flowers has always been a driving force in the creation of my jewelry. For my new series, I am focusing on meaningful sentences which will inspire the wearer, and have a distinct message.
Flowers have always facinated humans - to a point that mankind has attached significant meanings to them… actually going as far as to formulate a language all their own called "floriography."
This "language" was particularly utilized during the Victorian era.Flowers would convey messages of love or dislike depending upon which ones were given, their sizes how they were held, or also grouped together. They had a silent meaning of their very own, and could "say" what was not dared to be spoken.
