Oval poppy brooch
This delicately hand-crafted sterling silver brooch features a real poppy encapsulated in resin. Each flower is carefully grown, gently picked and slightly dried before being encased in resin.
With a pin and clasp fastening, this brooch would make an elegant addition to any jacket.
The poppy is a durable and persevering flower which grew in its thousands among desolate and barren battlegrounds. Its natural associations with endurance, determination and rebirth saw it adopted as a symbol of remembrance for those who lost their lives in the First World War. Lt John McCrae's 1915 poem, In Flanders Fields, helped secure the poppy's image as a hallmark of sacrifice and remembrance;
"In Flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row."
Hand-crafted in the UK by Shrieking Violet.
Each piece is presented in a luxurious gift box.
Materials: Sterling silver surround and casing with a real poppy flower sealed in resin.
