The Monthly Flowers

Organically shaped flower pendents. Hand forged from one single wire to stronger the feeling that everything is connected. The flower symbolize force of life and beauty, but also transience. Those flowers like to softly remind you to be present, but will not perish.

Veronica tells the story of The Monthly Flowers:

“A new flower species came to life every month in Ädelsmedjan during 2011. I wrote down what inspired me with the shape of every flower. The process made me feel alive in the present, humbly aware of the small changes in the seasons and everyday life.

Every Monthly Flower is forged by my hand here in Ädelsmedjan. As Fair Trade as it gets, locally produced, personal and environmentally friendly. It is the perfect memorial gift when you want to give consciously, be it birthday, engagement, wedding, anniversary, graduation or why not as a morning gift? I make them either as a pendent or earrings, in silver or 18k gold. Select the flower from the month of a dear memory, or just the one you find the most beautiful. Or, collect them all and carry them every month throughout the year!

In the midst of this flower-making, I stumble upon a poem  written in the year 1871 by Bishop M. Fransén, that cast light and in its simplicity beautifully summed up all this:

“A flower is the joy
Today she blossoms
Tomorrow she fades away
Right now, when you can
Have a moment of joy
And later think of what future will give”
