DAISY COIN CHARM NECKLACE ~ For Hope, New Beginnings, Love & Innocence
The name 'daisy' derives from the Anglo Saxon 'daeges eage', 'day's eye', because the flower opens in the day, but closes at night. In Victorian times it was said that if you stepped on seven daisies at one time, you knew that Summer had arrived and that dreaming of daisies in Spring would bring good luck, but bad in Winter. Long associated with love, they also believed that picking the first daisy of the season would fill you with romantic desire, and sleeping with a daisy under your pillow would encourage the return of an absent lover. Daisies also have a significant connection with children and innocence, the tradition of making daisy chains was a popular past-time and it was believed that wearing one would protect against abduction by fairies. Throughout the world, daisies are believed to have prophetic qualities. The well known chant of ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ as the petals are plucked is most popular in Europe, whilst in America it is to determine their future spouse’s calling, ‘rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief; merchant, tailor, banker, chief.’
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
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.
