Profile-pressed bleeding hearts and sweet violets become trails for your ears, paired with tiny white freshwater pearls. This beauty is created with 14k gold-filled ear wires.

The delicate Bleeding Heart is Native to China, Japan, and Korea. They then were brought to England by a plant explorer of the Royal Horticultural Society in 1846 and became naturalized in Europe and North America. Part of the poppy family, these special plants bloom with heart-shaped pink and white flowers. In many Asian cultures, these flowers signify a broken heart. Bleeding hearts appear in artists’ works throughout the last two centuries, one artist being Georgia O’Keefe, who created a bleeding heart painting from pastels in 1932.

Native to the Mediterranean, Asia and Europe, Sweet Violet has been naturalized all over the globe. We use this plant to create many things; the Greeks first used it to make perfume, Romans made wine and Ancient Britons used it for cosmetics & Medieval French troubadours used it to represent commitment in their stories of love. Although these plants produce sweet smells, the roots and seeds of the plant should not be eaten as they are toxic. However, the flowers were traditionally used as a flavoring in puddings and sweets/candy and used as an edible decoration.
