Flos – a memory turned into an object

Every culture has produced jewellery, people like to wear jewellery. Yet, jewellery cannot be distinctly classified as articles of daily use nor objet d’art. Distinctive features characterise it as much as its aesthetic-decorative effect does. Jewellery is often loaded with highly emotional memories, which elevate it to the most valuable memories of human assets.

A keepsake

Our flower bangle made from bronze is a memory turned into an object. In times of fast moving trends, this piece of jewellery is a moment of peace. It harbours such a notion of perpetuity. Bronze is a charming material with a special aura. When used, the piece of jewellery gathers personal traces of life, the surface becomes increasingly beautiful and more valuable. This makes it an unmistakeable keepsake that wants to be worn but also taken good care of, to be able to pass it on to trusted hands one day.

Design with a long life

We are positive that quality is upheld in the many years of use. The latter may also leave behind personal marks, which is actually what gives our products their own character, a personality. It is our aim to create things that are appreciated by their owner. It is the special deep relationship between an individual and an object that actually gives a object a soul.

Handmade

The leaves and petals, some of which merely being a tenth of a millimetre thick, are prepared in a specially developed process and individually arranged by hand. During the actual casting process, there is only one attempt: The organic plant fragments burn completely leaving behind a unique one-of-a-kind made out of bronze. Our pieces of jewellery are cast in an elaborate process supported by a vacuum. This is the only way these very filigree cast parts can be accomplished. To obtain the finely structured casting skin, the retouching work on the unfinished casting parts is solely done by hand. The surfaces worn on the skin are carefully smoothed and polished. Lastly, the choker is adapted to the future wearer in three dimensions to achieve the ideal fit and a pleasant feeling when wearing it. The careful arranging and intertwining of the petals and grasses creates the pleasant proportions and each unique design of the choker. The combination of artistic preparatory work, material and the hardly precisely controllable casting process create an object whose character and look can barely be described by the term design.
