Floral Trends

 

William Morris floral designs inspire Rachel Lucie's handmade silver jewellery
William Morris flower designs, the Arts and Crafts movement and other floral art through the ages is making a comeback with flower prints being big news in fashion with tea-dresses and maxi-dresses this season.
This summer I've really been taking inspiration from my love of botanical drawings and the role that flowers have had in design through history.
My Botanica Jewellery Collection, reflects this year's floral trends with the Flower Garden necklace and bracelet, and Daisy Chain bracelet and earrings.
Forget me Not necklace and earrings are an amazing blue which seems amplified by the blue of blue lace agate when paired with tiny sparkling iolite beads. The loose charm-style design is carefree and would go wonderfully with a linen dress, or a vest and jeans.
            
From a gesture of love, to bringing nature inside my home with floral decor. For sheer colour, elegance and femininity, flowers will always inspire me.
