Real Flower Jewelry
April begins tomorrow and Nature’s Art Village is bursting with Spring Fever!
These ravishing pieces of jewelry, in the photo above, are all 100% handmade from real Bonsai flowers. Each plant takes months to grow in a greenhouse in Texas and is hand trimmed every few days to keep their miniature size. Each flower, or set of flowers, are then preserved in a clear resin and then adorned with a rhodium plated clasp, backing, and or ear wire.
The flowers featured in our current collection are the Bonsai Rose (which represents life’s greatest feeling), the Forget-me-Not (which represents love and friendship), Sunflower (which might be one of the most celebrated flowers around the world), 4 Leaf Clover (a renown symbol of good luck), and the Crown of Thorns (which is a widely viewed religious symbol)
As mentioned earlier, this entire collection is rhodium plated. Rhodium is a precious metal and a member of the platinum family. It is used, especially in jewelry, to provide a surface that will resist scratches and tarnish, as well as provide a white, reflective appearance. The electroplated rhodium is tarnish free; therefore there is no need for constant polishing.
