Language of Flowers Collection Illustrative Collaboration with Vanessa Birley Florals

January, 2016

We recently had the pleasure of collaborating with Vanessa Birley Florals. We had been aware of Vanessa for some time and had admired her creativity not only in her floral arrangements but also in her illustrative artwork. Together we chose the idea of creating a unique illustration inspired by our Language of Flowers Ring Collection.

The Victorian era was the renowned age of the flower garden. The romantic Victorians encouraged an entire Language of Flowers, with each flower given symbolic meanings.

Our Victorian inspired Language of Flowers Ring Collection carries hidden romantic messages. We have selected some of our favourite flowers for the designs including forget-me-nots with their meaning of true love, daisies portraying innocence and lilies symbolising purity and sweetness.

Each of the beautifully carved flowers is individually placed on the ring with precision.

Vanessa’s illustration went through several stages from pencil sketch to the detailed painting. The final painted illustration captures the essence and colours of the flowers used in these unique rings. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Vanessa for her time and creativity on this collaboration.
