Forget Me Not flowers are some of the most delicate little blooms yet the hold so much symbolism. These little Forget Me Not flower earrings are handmade in solid sterling silver with elegant hand formed sterling silver ear hooks. They are the perfect sized earring to wear everyday.
MATERIALS & PROCESS
♢ Solid sterling silver (100 % recycled)
♢ The delicate flower in bloom is created using sterling silver metal clay, which is made up of tiny recycled sterling silver metal particles mixed with and organic clay like binder. It can be sculpted, molded, and formed however I want. To create my Forget Me Not flower I hand sculpted each petal, carving in and adding details. After the design dries 100% into my kiln it goes for a two-part firing process. The clay reaches 1500℉ for about an hour and the organic binder burns completely away leaving tiny sterling silver sculpture. I used my original handmade flower to create a little mold, which I then hand press more clay into to create a matching pair!
♢ The ear wires are hand formed as well using solid sterling silver to create an elegant profile and one of a kind profile.
♢ To bring out all those gorgeous little details I applied a dark patina to the recessed areas. The contrast between the bright shiny silver and the dark details is what sterling silver is famous for!
INSPIRATION & SYMBOLISM
♢ I love spending time in my garden and going for nature walks. Searching for local wildflowers is one of my favourite things to do. These little earrings are part of my "mini botanical" collection, which is inspired by all the tiny details found in the beauty of nature - from a single leaf, a little flower or a tiny seed.
♢ The Forget Me Not flower is rich in symbolism, history and folklore. It represents true and faithful love with long lasting connection. It is used as a symbol of remembrance and a special way to say "I won't forget about you."
♢ I love the fact that jewellery is lasting, it does not fade like a flower and becomes a tiny little treasure box full of memories!
