These sky blue flowers hold a lot of emotion for a tiny flower, traditionally given as a parting gift to a loved one, to say, “remember me”
I have melted down my scrap 9ct yellow gold into balls and then rolled it flat to hand pierce (saw) out the flower shape. I then burr out the holes for the gems and move the metal onto the sapphires. After the gems are locked in tight, I use a hand held graver to engrave the bright sparkling details, this is where the magic happens. The piece goes from a slightly rough, bland metal and stone thing, to a refined, sophisticated exquisite piece of heirloom jewellery.To mimic the tiny yellow centre, I star set a tiny yellow diamond.
Each flower measures approximately 10mm wide.
The earwires are solid 9ct yellow gold
