Floral Jewels. From the world’s leading designers/ Carol Woolton, 2014, p. 113.

“The simple forms of flowers have a powerful beauty that has seized the imagination of artists and jewellers since the ancient civilisations of egypt and Greece. Women have periodically adorned their hair or dress with “posies”, garlands and wreaths of flowers, a custom that was translated into metal and stones by the jeweller’s art. Capturing the perfect colour and blossom has long challenged jewellery designers, who transform the lines of a petal, corolla or flower head into sculptures that have everything of the plant except its scent. Using a combination of botanical drawings and references, rare floral specimens and the coloured stone-tipped brushes of their imagination, jewellers recreate the art of nature herself.”
