"Hers was the love of wilding things..." Bliss Carmen
handmade nature jewellery to inspire, replenish and restore
The challenges of modern life - the glorification of 'busy' - its easy to forget that we are part of a wider and beautiful natural world, evolved over millennia into a plethora of natural beings and entities, flora, fauna, and us. Many of us don't easily get to experience and appreciate nature as much as we might like or even should, causing a disconnect from our roots and our natural history. Grace & Flora Jewellery is handmade especially to rectify this shift in culture away from nature, making reminders of the beauty that is around us, the exquisite forms that evolved with natural, organic intelligence - to open their eyes and see it. The support we can gain from our natural environment is enormous and underestimated - with proven links to natural environments supporting our mental wellbeing. By engaging with the natural creativity of the universe (sorry if that sounds a bit hippy but its true science!) we can feel inspired, replenished and restored.
Grace & Flora pieces are direct casts from natural objects such as shells and leaves, or models made to interpret aspects of nature that such as flowers and birds. Information about specific themes can be found in the blog and in the product descriptions, revealing some deeper meanings and symbolism of each piece for added support and inspiration to the wearer.
Hi! My name is Kate, I am a jewellery designer-maker in South West London. I make jewellery inspired by nature and also enjoy photography, playing guitar and being a Mum. I originally studied Zoology, so have been interested in nature all my life, and have been making silver jewellery seriously since 2012 - celebrating nature and capturing its beauty forever.
