Forget-me-not’s Latin name ‘Myosotis’ comes from an ancient Greek word meaning ‘mouse’s ear’ which the foliage was thought to resemble. In German folklore, the tale of a knight and a lady gave the forget-me-not its name. One evening whilst strolling along a river bank she spotted a beautiful unknown flower. The chivalrous knight bent down to collect a bunch, but the weight of his armour unbalanced him and he plunged into the river. As he was dragged beneath the surface he cried out “forget me not” and his beloved wore those flowers in her hair until she died. Henry IV adopted it as his emblem in 1398, during his time in exile, and it is one of the symbols of the freemasons, in order that they can identify one another secretly. It was believed that wearing forget-me-nots would protect against witches in the month of May, and more generally from faery magic. Historically, forget-me-nots were worn by lovers to remember to each other while they were apart and Victorian ladies would send them to a distant friend to convey that they are in their thoughts.

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.
