The story of the bell jar collection
This collection was inspired by a life long fascination with the often overlooked treasures of the natural world. From plants, flowers & crystals to mushrooms, bones and seashells I have collected and cherished every strange thing you can imagine as if it were gold or diamonds over my lifetime. This in turn, developed into a love of natural history museums, antique taxidermy and Victoriana which then formed the foundation inspirations for the first incarnation of my real flower jewellery. There is something inherently magical about a bell jar, it has the magical effect of transforming the minute into the magnificent. They invite us to look a little closer and to uncover the treasure that had been lying unnoticed before our eyes all along.
What is natural history?
Natural history is the study of living organisms, such as plants, animals and fungi in their native habitats. It involves the observation of objects in nature to determine the evolution, patterns and interrelationships of any and all living creatures.
What are the pieces in this collection made from?
This stunning necklace is one of my most popular pieces and features a tiny real flower garden in tones of dusty pink and green with a few strands of opalescent peacock feather woven through, it's sure to make a lovely gift for any gardener. The plants inside include real pink mountain heather, white moss and star flowers.
This little terrarium necklace features two little mushrooms which I handsculpted from polymer clay on a bed of real green forest moss and under a glass dome. I add two or three real dandelion seeds for an extra touch of magic. I may have said it already, but this is another one of my most popular necklaces and a perfect gift for any mushroom forager.
This beautiful piece features a single white snowdrop that I grew and picked from my own garden in the earliest days of Spring, before preserving it to last a lifetime in a solid eco-resin dome. This piece would make an amazing sentimental present on Christmas morning or for a winter birthday.
