Gorse is best known for its associations with the sun, its bright yellow flowers a sign of vibrancy and energy. It is an intelligent light seeker, the seeds will fling as far as possible from their parents to establish themselves independently, in order to maximise their exposure to the sun. In Wales, hedges of Gorse were thought to protect the home against evil and dark fairies, who couldn’t penetrate the hedge.
This sterling silver charm is cast from a real flower and each piece includes a recycled card detailing its botanical folklore and floriography.

Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.
