There is always that first evening, when just before dawn you hear a blackbird sing for the very first time again. It fills my heart with joy every spring. That first song, the first shy signs of new life. The little lambs that seem to be everywhere right now. The blossoming of the trees. Flowers slowly popping out everywhere.
Cantecler designed this delightful necklace
Spring is connected with rebirth and new hope. A season with its own set of emotions that we attach to it. Jewelry designers have always embraced, like most artists of course, nature. Flowers, butterflies, caterpillars, blossom …we all see it back in striking examples of jewelry that tempts you to feel the same emotions over and over again whilst you wear them. Emotions that beauty can stir within us.We sold these brooches when I lived in Italy and ran a jewelry store. Sant Agostino is also from Valenza and makes the most delicate jewelry. Mostly stuffed with flowers and bugs!
So for the whole duration of spring I will post every Tuesday a series that might stir that emotion within you J
This week it’s all about flowers!Love bird ring by Boodles*. Such a romantic ring. Makes me think of poetry:
Poem by Mark R. Slaughter
I fell in love –
Taken by the innocence of
Their perky April fanfares –
Clarion calls from yellow-ochre brass bands -
Presaging, rejoicing, calling us:
‘Here we are! Here we are!
* The Boodles Lovebird ring price is: £32.960 :-) ( gasping, or running to get that hammer and break that ceramic piggy bank?, hehehe)
