The seed of an idea...

Growing up in Scotland and having spent my life here, I have surrounded myself with the wonders and diversity of Scottish nature and felt the contentment and happiness it brings. From a young age I would pick wildflowers and keep them, only to notice that they would not stay in their original form, often decaying and disintegrating. As I grew older I began experimented with ways of preserving the little treasures I would find. I tried pressing flowers in books, putting fresh flowers in tiny vases with a little sugar water, keeping seeds and pinecones in airtight Tupperware boxes. Eventually, each little botanical element would rot away and I would loose that memory.

In 2016 I discovered resin as a tool for preserving flowers and with much trial and error I have developed my own ways of working. Each and every botanical element is hand picked and hand pressed by me in order to maintain its original vibrancy and is picked directly from Scottish soil and is pressed immediately. Needless to say I keep a pocket flower press with me everywhere I go. Each and every item has a description of where it was picked and when it was pressed, so you have the knowledge of exactly where in Scotland your botanical element came from. Each finished resin piece takes between 5-14 days to make. It is truly a labour of love and we put our very all into each and every piece.

I love to receive custom orders and have a vast portfolio of such which I am happy to share. Previous custom orders include the preservation of wedding flowers, children's teeth and pet ashes and fur. This is often very delicate work and extensive knowledge is applied (resin reacts differently with every single species of flower, seed or other item). The prices for custom orders begin at £30. Don't be shy, I am happy to give a full pricelist of custom orders and tailor the item to suit your individual needs, including those on a budget.

Thank you for your time to look at my store. I appreciate each and every order and message I receive.

Frequently asked questions
Can you make me a custom order/ item?

I would be delighted to make you a custom item and creating one of a kind, custom pieces is our specialty. This can be done one of two ways: you have pressed flowers or items already at your disposal you would like me to preserve for you and make into jewellery or you have an idea of a design containing certain botanics or other items you would like me to make for you. Custom orders take around 2-4 weeks and start at £55.

My item hasn't arrived yet - what do I do?

I'm sorry to hear your item hasn't been delivered just yet. Please contact me if your item hasn't arrived in 5 days for the UK, 14 days for the US and 14 days for EU and I will look into it for you. I keep all tracking info at hand. If your item doesn't reach you and I can confirm this using the tracking methods then I will send a replacement. If you are not home at the time of delivery or have given the wrong address please note this is not my responsibility and if the parcel is not returned, no refunds will be issued. It is not my responsibility to get gift items to you on time unless you have stated so at checkout and the time is reasonable.

We can offer surgical steel earrings at no extra cost but please allow 2-3 weeks ontop of current processing time.

Our products are not suitable for children under 5 as they may pose a choking hazard.

Customs information for international orders

For international orders - EU, US and NZ and AU - we fill in our own customs label under "costume jewellery" and can provide tracking info on request. Orders usually arrive within 5-12 days.

Express shipping to the United States

Express shipping is now available to our lovely US, EU, NZ and AU customers and costs an additional £35 to be sent via TNT (courier). Tracking information will be sent directly to your email address and not via Etsy. On dispatch, the parcel will arrive in 1-3 days for US, 1-5 days for AU, EU and NZ. If express shipping is needed please let me know at checkout or via message and I will send over an express shipping listing for you. We will not send items express without this being paid for at checkout. If you need your item quickly, this method is recommended.

Care instructions

To care for your new jewellery, each piece must be kept dry and must never be worn in the shower, bath or swimming pool/ sauna as this can compromise the clarity of the resin. Always store your jewellery in the tarnish proof presentation box provided and avoid leaving your jewellery at a windowsill in direct sunlight for extended periods of time. If required upon extended wear, please clean with a microfibre cloth. Keep out of reach of children. Rings must only be adjusted once and slipped on and off the finger. As with any metal, frequent adjusting can weaken the sterling silver and cause breakages. We will not refund any items or offer replacements for what is considered irresponsible care or intentional damage i.e. too frequent adjusting
