Most Original Interpretation of the Theme award winner
In Bloom: sterling silver, lepidolite mica, bipyramidal fluorite, and silk thread
To open necklace untie strings (from top of moveable petals) and retie under stationary petals (holding moveable petals open and down). Can open 1, 2 or all 3 petals in this way (based on where you tie the string).
“In Bloom” conveys the secret meeting times between two lovers struggling to be together despite class disparity. The romance started when the goldsmith’s apprentice found a piece of Lepidolite Mica and gave it to the noble’s daughter. The stone, although rough, had a perfect heart shape in the crystal structure symbolizing the gift of his heart. Since she had wealth at her disposal she was able to commission him to make her a necklace that would enable them to communicate. No expense was spared and the planning was intricate thus giving the couple the added benefit of additional time together. The final design was for a necklace that that acted like a clock; it had eight flowers, each with three movable petals. Each of the twenty-four moveable petals signified one-hour. She wore the necklace everyday and told the hour they could meet through the number of petals laid open.
