The snowdrop is one of the most loved flowers throughout the world and has been a universal symbol of hope for many cultures throughout history. Snowdrop’s Latin name Galanthus, translates as Milk Flower but it's also known as the ‘Fair Maid of February,’ for the joy it brings at the back end of the bleak Winter months. According to German folklore, snowdrops were the only flower willing to lend their colour to the snow, and overwhelmed with gratitude the snow granted snowdrops the protection from the bitter cold and icy conditions, to be able to flower when the others can’t. Snowdrops were incredibly important to the Victorians who believed that taking the flower into the house could bring ill-fortune, turn milk sour and spoil eggs. This superstition was not for everyone though, the good folks of Shropshire and Herefordshire would carry a snowdrop inside as part of a house blessing ceremony. Believed to have been brought to the UK by Italian monks in the 15th Century, many Victorians embraced planting snowdrops on the graves of loved ones which is why you will often find them there today.

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.
