Forget-me-not Studs with eco resin, made in Ireland, sterling silver, forgetmenot
These unique stud earrings are made with a little Forget-me-not flower, a tiny bit of gold leaf and eco resin. The flower is very popular because of its unique shape and colour and ofcource its memorable name.
There are many legends about this little flower and it was often used as a symbol of love in history. In medieval times, it was often worn by ladies as a sign of faithfulness and enduring love. And in 15th-century Germany, it was supposed that the wearers of the flower would not be forgotten by their lovers.
The studs are sterling silver and the eco friendly resin we use is plantbased, UV resistant and non toxic.

This item is handmade in Ireland using natural materials. Therefore each piece is unique and might slightly differ from picture.
Each order comes with a nice little gift box. Please recycle if you don't want to use it.
Each step in the long process to create a botanical piece is taken with much precision and care. From finding special flowers, using different methods to dry them while maintaining their colours and shapes, casting a clear resin, sanding and polishing each item. Overall it can take up to a week to complete a piece of jewellery. But it is all worth it when you see the magical end product.
The resin that we use is from Ecopoxy (www.ecopoxy.com), which is a plantbased, waterproof, UV resistant and non-toxic epoxy that is truly green. ✨🌿🌷
