A single dusty pink, wild hedgerow dog rose has been carefully pressed and encased in a vintage inspired glass locket, to create this pretty summer flower necklace.
The natural beauty of these flowers has been captured using a multi-stage preservation process, to create a necklace to last a lifetime, a perfect reminder of the flower-filled summer days gone by to carry with you wherever you go.
The locket has been hung on a 20 inch long bronze rolo chain.
Roses have had a deeply symbolic meaning since the time of the Greeks and Romans, when they were affiliated with Aphrodite and Venus, the Goddess's of love, beauty and femininity. In Victorian times, pink roses symbolizes happiness, and rosebuds to symbolize new love, making this the perfect thoughtful gift for Valentines day or an anniversary!
Based on the history and folklore of these plants, I have created a truly meaningful gift for your loved one, a bouquet of flowers which will never fade away. Your new pendant will arrive safely packaged in one of my beautiful signature gift boxes, complete with a gift card telling where it was made and it's symbolic significance.
As this piece was made real flowers and plants, take care to keep it dry and to store it safely away from direct sunlight when you're not wearing it.
