The flower of May and one of the promise of happiness. Also one often kept in poison gardens...
All of these Lily of the Valley pieces feature bell branches that have been cast from the real thing! Real Lily of the Valley flowers, hand gathered from my own field, have been immortalized in silver. This was challenging to do, but oh so worth it. These are the only LotV pieces I will make this year, until they bloom again next spring!
A LotV flower branch turned into a bouquet sprig with two leaves and a silver ribbon binding them together. This piece reminds me of classic, vintage Lily of the Valley imagery one might find on a Valentine, Forget Me Not, or tea cup. This particular branch is not a "perfect" one and its bells are a bit more worn and tattered. I find this hauntingly beautiful, and reminds me of moths and the cycle of bloom and slumber.
Handcrafted out of Sterling and Fine Silver (.925, .999) this piece measures approximately 2.1" x 1.25" at widest points. Strung on a 20" sterling silver chain as shown in the above pictures.
Please note: This is the chain this piece arrives on and while I understand chain preferences to be very individual, I am unable to swap this chain out for a different one.
As always, all stones used are ethically sourced and artisan cut. I pride myself and go to great lengths and expense to ensure all stones I use are not only valuable but also 100% ethical.
Each item is individual and handmade meaning no production lines are found at Dark Fawn. In this inherent nature, each piece will feature "imperfections" as the evidence of the individual eye and human touch each piece receives; making them all the more unique, ever more valuable and filled with energy. I also offer a lifetime guarantee on the blackened patina. If in the future, the patina wears off (as is the nature of it, giving it a more aged look as time goes on), simply send the ring back to me and I will re-blacken it for free. Did I leave anything out? Please check out my FAQ!
