    Although I travel around the world and all the cultures inspire me to design my jewelry, in springtime I get all my inspiration from scenes something like 200 meters from my home. My inspiration is to make flower jewelry, or jewelry inspired on flowers to be exact.

    I live in the middle of the bulb or flower fields and the colors at the moment of those fields are stunning. The jewelry designers found their inspiration this year in nature and heaven. They designed flower jewelry or jewelry with real flowers and they used flower-shaped material to make the women more beautiful as they already are. When you love nature, you will love ‘flower jewelry’!

    The meaning of flower jewelry

    Flower jewelry or a flower pendant is a special piece of jewelry. It is a symbol of life and vitality, that will bring you a lot of energy and strength to you on in your life. And on top of that, a flower and a piece of flower jewelry are symbols of love. Think about this: when you want to please a woman you bring flowers and if you love her give her a piece of flower jewelry.

    What does a flower necklace say?

    In Hawaii, you get a lei (garland of flowers) as a welcome or farewell present. These lei are made of carnations and blossoms of Kika, ginger, jasmine, or orchids.

    There are certain flowers that are special symbols and a depiction of these special flowers in a necklace or brooch or another piece of jewelry have the same meaning. Let us find out what the meaning of these specific flowers is:

    A rose and therefore a piece of jewelry with the image of a rose is the symbol of love and sacrifice. But also death. People throw roses in water when a person is drowned. The rose is also linked to the Greek goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of love.

    It is more complicated what the symbol of the lily is because every variety stands for something different. Overall the lily is the symbol of purity and fertility or new life and rebirth.

    Nearly every flower is a symbol for something. So you have to take care that when you give a piece of flower jewelry as a present, you know what the meaning is behind that flower. So we follow with some more examples, without being able to cover all flowers.

    Lavender stands for purity, calmness, grave, and serenity or purity. And the color purple of the lavender is the color of loyalty, elegance, refinement, and luxury. The tulip, thé flower of The Netherlands, is the symbol of perfectness and deep love. You give tulips to someone you love unconditionally, like your partner, children, or parents. And that love grows like the tulip keeps growing even in a vase.

    Sunflowers are the representants of Summer and happiness. They are like little suns in a bouquet of flowers, with their golden petals and beautiful brownish center. You can compare them with the gemstone Citrine, a symbol of the sun and the light too.

    Next season’s trend: flower jewelry

    In a few blog posts, I already give the tip, that you don’t have to follow all the trends that the jewelry designers come up with. You will get bankrupt and not necessarily all the trends will fancy or suit you.

    I show you the trends on flower jewelry and you can:

    1. Decide you purchase some trendy stuff, which means low quality and cheap
    2. Look in your jewelry box and find a piece of flower jewelry that matches the trend. Like a pair of earrings in the shape of a flower or leave. And you can wear this piece more often
    3. Think…. I want a new piece of jewelry and I love nature and flowers. Search for some great pieces, you really really love. You must be sure that you love that piece also when the trend is over. And you will wear flower jewelry when the trend is over. And you purchase that flower jewelry.

    #3 is the best tip I can give you! Jewelry is emotional, and like flower jewelry and you have to feel great wearing it. And flower jewelry has to match your style and taste. And when I can help you with any advice, just let me know (contact form)

    Back to the flower jewelry!

    Climate change is worrying. In the USA the snow falls and keeps falling, even in April. In the Netherlands, the flower parade in my hometown will be one week earlier than planned. The flowers are in full bloom and they cannot keep them fresh until the planned date. There are floods in Brazil, storms in East Africa, and more climate disasters happen.

    Due to all this, people are more interested, more worried about nature. And fashion and flower jewelry designers pick these ‘feelings’ up and design clothing and jewelry using the theme ‘nature’ of ‘flowers’. And the result is flower jewelry.

    That means that you find (a lot more than usual) pieces of jewelry made of flowers, using resin to put the flowers in. Or they use materials, like gemstones and silver in the shape of flowers. Or they use natural colors and materials.

    And don’t forget… Mother’s Day will be here soon. Most of the time you give your mother or mother-in-law (or you get) flowers. Maybe this time you can give her a piece of ‘flower’ jewelry’. You can find some in my collection and when you cannot find what you want, just let me know and I design and make it for you.
