“Scilla, Scilla, tell me true,
Why are you so very blue?
Oh, I really cannot say
Why I’m made this lovely way!"
The Flower Fairies - Cicely Mary Barker
When seeing Scilla flowers in Spring, I am reminded of Cicely Mary Barker, the amazing English illustrator best known for a series of fantasy illustrations depicting fairies and flowers.
In commemoration of Cicely, I've made this botanical necklace using eco-friendly resin and a Scilla flower collected from my cottage garden this Spring. An ideal gardening gift for her.
After being preserved using a technique which dries the flower in its 3D shape, it is placed in an round mold along with some crystal clear eco-friendly resin made from tree sap. After it is cured, it is de-molded and each resin orb is sanded, glazed and polished to a natural shine. It's decorated with a layered bead cap and it is mounted on a sterling silver or silver plated snake chain in your choice of 18 or 20 inch.
