GORSE CHARM ~ For Independence, Intelligence, Protection, Affection & Energy

Gorse is best known for its associations with the sun, its bright yellow flowers a sign of vibrancy and energy. It is an intelligent light seeker, the seeds will fling as far as possible from their parents to establish themselves independently, in order to maximise their exposure to the sun. It thrives in hostile growing conditions where many other species struggle, and is often used for land reclamation, where it nitrogen-fixing qualities help other plants to become established. Gorse, or Furze as it is known in parts of the UK, was a traditional May Day gift between young lovers in the South West. Carrying a sprig of gorse is said to attract gold, provide protection or lift the spirits of the downhearted. In Wales, hedges of gorse were thought to protect the home against evil and dark fairies, who couldn’t penetrate the hedge.

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

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.
