This dainty flower is one I came across in a warehouse full of vintage findings. It reminded me of a little forget-me-not bloom, delicate flowers serving as a strong symbol for love, romance and remembrance. As best said by Henry David Thoreau, "It is one of the most interesting minute flowers. It is the more beautiful for being small and unpretending; even flowers must be modest." I had these flowers cast in silver. After cleaning up the castings and playing around with a few designs I decided to keep this piece modest and to the point. I soldered a bail to a petal and gave the flower a slight matte texture, like that of a hazy memory. Then I chose a simple chain and handmade a clasp.
This 10.5mm flower hangs from a dainty 16 inch chain. It is made from sterling silver.
