GYPSOPHILA CHARM NECKLACE ~ For Freedom, Love, Friendship, Reconnection & Innocence
Gypsophila is also known as baby’s breath, a name which became popular in the late 1800s because of its delicate odour and bloom. It is a native of Eastern Europe, but nowadays grows happily all over the world and thrives in dry, sandy soil. Gypsophila literally translates as lover of chalk. Widely associated with innocence and ever lasting love, the flower is a firm florist’s favourite used in bridal bouquets and christenings. Gypsophila was a common ingredient in folklore medicines to treat coughs and colds, and their high saponin content is used in cleaning products, camera film emulsions and fire extinguishers. It is said to be the fairy’s favourite flower and can be used to attract their positive energies, it is also a powerful ingredient used in love spells and potions.
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.
