Contemporary flora

Few jewelers avoid using the flower, a subject as fascinating as it is inexhaustible. The more contemporary versions move further from reality and break with its silent image. Even without a gemstone and using only metal, it is enough to work with a circular pattern to immediately reveal an archetype of the flower. Even hybridized, distorted or given a twist, the flower is so present in the collective imagination that most often it continues to simply resemble a flower.
