Flowers are, of course, ephemeral but it is possible to preserve them. Although this is usually achieved by pressing or drying, another method is to encase them with resin.
Botanic Isles is a flower preservation specialist, based in Kirriemuir, Angus, creating pieces of handmade jewellery. Each piece uses responsibly sourced, hand-picked Scottish wild flowers preserved in non-toxic, environmentally friendly resin by young designer, Laura Cooke. Botanic Isles helps the Scottish countryside blossom by planting more flowers than it picks each year. Chains and earring findings are sterling silver or gold-fill if gold coloured. Each item is hallmarked and comes in luxury packaging with gift bag and botanical information card detailing what the flower symbolises, where it was picked, the date it was picked and date of preservation. The range includes forget-me-nots, bluebells, wildflowers, heather, snowdrops and many more.
Botanic Isles are offering five lucky winners the chance to win a collection of Scottish wildflower jewellery, each set worth £100. Each collections contains a sterling silver necklace and drop earring set with forget-me-not, wood anemone and Siberian squill.
