Calla Lily Necklace | Language of Flowers
Calla Lilies are steeped in tradition and for centuries have been symbolic of purity, innocence, royalty, holiness, or elegance, depending on their color. They are also considered a symbol resurrection or rebirth, making them a common flower to bring a loved one after they have passed.
The Language of Flowers collection was inspired by the significance that flowers have been given by man, and by the rich floral oil paintings of Victorian Era artists.

HOW THIS PIECE WAS CREATED
Each petal and leaf on every flower of The Language of Flowers collection has been modeled by hand in wax. The wax sculpture is turned into sterling silver or bronze through a process called lost wax casting. The flower is then cleaned, patina is added, then it is polished.
Monica is personally invested in the process of creating each and every piece, literally leaving her mark in every single detail of every flower. The material that she uses to create these flowers records her hand prints, which can be seen in the fine surface texture of every petal and leaf.
