Have you ever considered how ingenious and clever a designer has to be when constructing certain items of jewelry? This delightfully fresh necklace “bouquet” of daisies can provide a bit of insight into the process.
Creative and artful in its overall configuration, weighty but comfortable a series of twenty sterling silver and vermeil silver daisy flowers on stems are joined together.
Designed to lay flat, the reverse of each link shows how the “stem” is curved and has an open terminal through which the subsequent stem is threaded. A hook clasp secures the necklace.
FYI: Each floret is realistically detailed with petals and a central eye. But did you know that a daisy is actually two flowers in one - the petals are a separate flower from the central cluster flower which forms the eye.
Note: This hangs properly in one orientation only.
With Thanks to Emily Dickinson:
The Himmaleh was known to stoop
Unto the Daisy low --
Transported with Compassion
That such a Doll should grow
Where Tent by Tent -- Her Universe
Hung out its Flags of Snow --
