This limited edition piece by Bellus Domina is “made with natural orchids coated in acrylic resin. This necklace is exclusively and carefully hand-made in Sicily by trained jewellery designers and topnotch assemblers. Orchids are as light as air and all its veins are readable on the surface, this does not only make unwarranted duplication impossible, it is also designed to bring you comfort and pride. The handmade artisan process requires about a week for each jewellery piece to be made. The process begins with the careful selection of flowers and petals featuring unique shapes and colours. After this selection has been made, Orchids are dried and preserved with several coats of Acrylic resin. Each jewellery piece is made unique. Subsequently, to a slight extent, the stock image might be different from the necklace due to the unique features of natural plants.”
Orchids are notoriously finicky to grow and maintain, so this necklace gives you the bloom without the fuss. This sells for USD$480.
