Forget me nots
Forget me not earrings – handmade and recycled sterling silver florin coin.
These delicate sterling silver studs are tricky little pieces to cut, carve and inlay. The space is very small, at only 12 mm diameter working area. Also, the fine details have to reflect the dainty nature of the flower itself. The special earrings are hand-made from a Victorian Florin silver coin with 22ct gold inlaid for the stamens. Forget me nots are a symbol of fidelity and being truthful to someone you love.
This petit French flower has been adopted as the flower to represent Alzheimer’s Societies. This means the flower has both romantic and familial connotations perfectly suitable for a little silver gift. Each pair is completely unique, contemporary, ethical and beautiful. I present the earrings with a sterling silver ‘off-cut’ which connects them to their history.
