To make this necklace I have stuffed a hand blown glass orb with enough real dandelion wishes to last a life time! I gathered these seeds from the hedgerows on my walks in the countryside, which I take home and preserve until bone dry before carefully placing each one by one into glass and adding a wire wrapped acorn cap.
Acorns are symbolic of new life and new beginnings, the potential of a little seed to become a forest of mighty oaks while dandelions are symbolic of our most secret dreams and wildest wishes making this a beautiful, meaningful piece of jewellery for the wild at heart and romantics. It would also be a lovely little keepsake for anyone about to set off on any grand adventures in life who might appreciate a little moral support on the way.
The acorn is hung on a lovely 30 inch long bronze rolo chain for a casual, draped look.
While every care has been taken to ensure the longevity of this piece please keep it dry.
The pieces at Ruby Robin are designed to allow the quiet beauty of nature to shine, to stir the imagination, inspire wonder and encapsulate a microcosm of long forgotten memories. I make my jewellery using a range of strange and beautiful curiosities, found in the woods and on the mountain sides, on the windswept beaches and wild meadows.
