Single Rose Necklace
Roses are steeped in tradition and for centuries have been symbolic of love, gratitude, friendship, or passion, depending on their color. In mystic ideals, the rose is a symbol that conveys love, creation, purity, clarity, and The Senses.
This is a unique one-of-a-kind hand modeled piece from my The Language of Flowers Collection. This collection was influenced by my research of flower species, their colors, with a greater focus on their present day and historical meanings. Other notable influences are 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.
