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.
This necklace says : "Trust in Yourself to have Luck, for the faith/hope in an open heart filled with gratitude is your strength".
The flowers are the symbols for the sentiments in the Victorian language of flowers. The connecting words are represented by faceted green apatite.

The necklace is hand fabricated in my Portland OR studio. Each is individually made and may be slightly different ( even more special!)The sterling silver flowers has been pierced and textured to matte finish.
Apatite is a stone of manifestation. It is related to service and to humanitarian pursuits. Apatite is attuned to the future, yet connects to past lives. It stimulates the development of our psychic gifts and spiritual attunement, deepening meditation and aiding communication and self-expression on all levels. It balances the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies, and the chakras, eliminating overactivity and stimulating underactivity.
**** I would love to take commisions on this series of work. If you have a special saying that you would like translated into a meaningful piece of jewelry through the Language of Flowers, please convo me!****
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.
