A wooden Mantel/Wall Box with a hinged glass door, containing a long Garden-Inspired necklace.
Featuring a pea pod with grass-green peridot beads, a hand engraved bee, a mini plant pot, a reel of twine and a woven sieve all in sterling silver. The necklace at its longest point has a hand-pierced silver Japanese Anemone flower with a beautiful bottle-green faceted green tourmaline set in 18ct yellow gold.
The inside of the box is collaged with old botanical drawings and a quote by British novelist and gardener, Vita Sackville West which inspired the piece.
“The more one gardens, the more one learns; And the more one learns, the more one realizes how little one knows.”
The quote perfectly sums up for me, how we never stop learning.
