COW PARSLEY COIN CHARM NECKLACE ~ For Safety, Refuge, Peace, Protection, Fantasy & Beauty

Cow Parsley has many names in Britain, and is fondly thought upon, being one of the first plants to flower abundantly along the hedgerows and roadsides in Spring. The name Queen Anne’s Lace seemingly came about during her walks around Kensington, when she proclaimed the paths had been decorated especially for her by the plant, which resembled the lace pillows her ladies in waiting carried. The origin of the name Mother Die comes from a folk tale that children were told, that if they picked cow parsley, their mother would die. This threat would deter children who couldn't tell the difference between that and the closely resembling and highly poisonous hemlock. It is also said to ‘break mother’s heart’ and be unlucky indoors. It’s believed this could be because the petals drop soon after picking, adding to her workload! Associated with fantasy and beauty, because of the delicate lace like flowers, many women would add the flowers to their ritual baths in the hope of attracting love. Cow Parsley is also known as ‘Bishops Flower’ or ‘Bird’s nest’ because it curls into a concave shape as it dries, this has led to a strong association with safety, sanctuary and refuge.

Our coin sentiment charms are made with real flowers in sterling silver, using the traditional technique of lost wax casting. They are beautifully packaged with our signature box posy which changes with the seasons, a postcard detailing the botanical folklore and floriography of each piece, and a gift card for a personal message.

Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.

Flower & Fable

Beddgelert, gwynedd

We are Karen & Ben Lambert, working together from our shop/workshop while living above. We use real flowers to create vintage & floriography inspired jewellery, using a mixture of traditional and specifically developed techniques.

We believe that jewellery should feel like a gift, whether for yourself or for someone else, so it should be beautifully packaged. From eco-packaging and hand dyed bamboo silk ribbons, to our seasonal, scented dried flower posy, we love attention to detail, and for Karen, it's a favourite part of the process.
