Best known as a herb for cooking throughout the world, dill has also historically been used in a wide range of traditional medicines. The word dill originates from the Norse word dylla, meaning to sooth and is first recorded in ancient Egyptian medical texts dated to around 3000 B.C. In ancient Greece it was used to make fragrance and thought of as a sign of wealth and good luck. In the middle ages Christian Monks believed it to have magical properties that would keep the devil at bay, it was also used against witchcraft. If someone thought a witch had cast a spell on them, they would make a concoction which contained dill leaves, or wear a charm made from dill to protect themselves from the spell. In German folklore, a bride desiring an equal marriage could secretly bring dill and mustard seeds to the wedding and speak the words “I have you mustard and dill, husband, when I speak, you stay still!”
Our petite 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.
