Winter can be seen as a quiet period, but it holds its unique charm in the garden, especially with the winter flowers that dare to bloom amidst the frost. These blossoms provide a perfect muse for artists, particularly for those crafting sterling silver jewellery.
Flowers That Bloom in Early Spring
Carnations (January Birth Flower): Carnations are especially cherished in January. Their ruffled petals come in a myriad of colors, with the white ones symbolizing pure love and good luck. Their beauty makes them a staple in flower jewellery, especially in sterling silver designs.
Primroses (February Birth Flower): As February unfolds, primroses emerge from hidden bulbs, hinting at the spring that's on the horizon. Their soft petals, especially the pristine whites, epitomize youth and young love and are one of the first colourful flowers that you will come across in woodlands and in the garden.
Snowdrops: One of the first bulbs to sprout, snowdrops stand as a symbol of hope and resilience. Their delicate white petals can inspire earrings, bracelets, or even necklaces.
Witch Hazel (Hamamelis): The spidery flowers of witch hazel in shades of yellow, orange, and red might not be everyone's first choice, but they symbolize protection, an essence captured in jewellery, especially bracelets and earrings.
Winter Aconite (Eranthis hyemalis): Their vibrant yellow blooms bring a pop of colour to the winter months, symbolizing hope and the promise of spring.
Cyclamen: A carry-over from December, cyclamens' vibrant hues against winter's backdrop make them ideal for necklaces and other pieces, symbolizing sincere affection and attachment.
Hellebores (Lenten Rose): Hellebores, sometimes mistaken for roses, come in various shades, but the whites and pinks capture the season's essence, representing tranquility and peace.
