Elderflower Gold Stud Earrings
One of our favourite flowers of summer.... the summer blooms of Elderflower or 'Tramman' Tree flowers as they are known here on the Island, line our country lanes and hedgerows. It also reminds us of our time spent living in Denmark, where the 'Hyldeblomst' cordial is one of the favourite drinks of summer! A Truly exquisite aroma filled flower.... simply beautiful.

~ About the Elderflower Collection ~
We designed and created our 'Elderflower collection' at our studio here on the Isle of Man, where Elderflowers are seen growing in the shadows of the tholtans and barns near nearby. Crafted in sterling silver and gold, each design capturing the beauty of this magical summer bloom.
Steeped in mystery and superstition, many powers and properties have been attributed to the Elder, with its mass of white flowers and dark black berries. In folklore it is planted near the home as it protects the house and its vicinity because it is frequently inhabited by the 'little people' or fairies, and the celts and vikings recognised the tree for its healing properties, symbolising good health and prosperity.
