More Details about the Piece from the Artist, Adela:
"The tiny flowers are pressed and preserved in a perfectly transparent resin, as a modern amber.
This ring is made of 925 sterling silver, with the resin poured in a setting. We chose a bright red as background, to highlight and complete the delicate color and details of the flower.
The flowers of 'Daucus carota', commonly known as 'Queen Anne's lace' (or "wild carrot"), adorn the hills and mountains around Brasov, all summer long.
It is so called because the flower resembles lace; the red flower in the center is thought to represent a blood droplet where Queen Anne pricked herself with a needle when she was making the lace.
The plant is kept inside a strong clear resin that will last for many years, for your children and your nieces to admire it.
If you will own this jewellery you become part of a worldwide movement of preserving nature and rising awareness to the danger pose of pollution. If we can make more and more people realise that plants are crucial for a healthy ecosystem, we are one step closer to a better world."
We love this sentiment and couldn't agree more! Enjoy!
