Vintage tone lily earrings
Vintage tone lily earrings with Sterling silver findings and Swarovski crystals and pearls
Gilli's flowers is an original, eclectic and meaningful range of origami flower jewellery.
ORIGINAL because all designs are my own and because I take paper, origami, self printed or coloured, or recycled, and turn it into flowers which I make into jewellery.
ECLECTIC because my range includes romantic, vintage designs, contempary ones and some with a Goth feel. Eclectic because I take my inspiration from vintage and historic jewellery, modern trends and the natural world.
MEANINGFUL because I make links to the victorian language of flowers, updating it and renaming it as Flowerji. I research traditions and tales linked to flowers and make Flower of the Month pieces. I can reccomend pieces to give a specific message or custom make
As well as selling through E17 I have an online shops on my website and also on Etsy.
Making jewellery from paper may seem strange, but customers and visitors to my stall are always surprised at how strong it is and how it is not at all flimsy. All pieces are given several coats of varnish to add strength and durability as well as water resistance.
