Foxglove studs with eco resin, sterling silver, made in Ireland, forest treasures
These stunners are made with the magical Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) I picked in the forest.The flower is known by a variety of names such as 'Fairy thimbles' and it's one of my favourite flowers. Luckely you'll find them in abundance in Ireland in woodland, moors and along roadsides where they bloom from June to August. These particular ones I picked in a forest near Cork.
Although poisonous, this plant is of enormous use to medicine. It has been found to be a major instrument in the treatment of heart conditions as it contains digitoxin and digoxin. But ofcourse I like them for their beauty, gorgeous colours and patterns.

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.✨🌿🌷
