Borage for courage!

 

Roman soldiers would drink borage wine for courage before going to battle.

 

As folklore goes, a potential husband would drink a potion with borage to give him the courage to propose to his sweetheart…

 

Each flower is shaped and enamelled by hand with care and attention to detail.
These little creations are all slightly different, due to the hand crafted techniques used.
The enamel reacts to the slightest of changes in the process of the crafting. This gives each flower a unique charm, with subtle flares of colour and changes in the texture of the silver. Each piece ends up a bit of a surprise, just as nature intends.
Each borage flower is 12mm wide.
Made with sterling silver and glass enamel.
All components are also sterling silver.
