Today I am happy to introduce a new line of jewellery, N. Historiae, created by my friend Flora, based here in Toronto.
Founded by Flora Lam, N. Historiae’s collections are objects made to endure and unconfined by seasons. Guided by instinct and intuition, our creations are inspired by beauty from the natural world, marked by the stories of extraordinary lives lived.
Each piece is beautifully hand-carved using gold and accented with Japanese ribbon. I was drawn immediately to the two collections, The Dweller and the Fly-Fisherman’s Wife, because they reminded me of being 12 and signing out every book on Greek mythology that I could find, and of learning to translate Ovid in university. There is something so Classical, in the literal sense, about the imagery used.
I had the chance to examine the pieces and they are so stunning, so well-crafted. I kept thinking that they look like pieces that could be found in the ancient Mediterranean collection in a museum (always my favourite section of a museum).
Together with N. Historiae, I will be giving away one Wheat necklace. To enter, please visit the N. Historiae shop and leave a comment below telling me which piece is your favourite (please be sure to leave me a form of contact, either an email or a website link; also note that I have turned on comment moderation to combat spam and your comment will not appear immediately). For an added entry, please follow N. Historiae on Twitter and leave a comment below letting me know that you have done so. I will close the giveaway on April 24 at noon EDT, and choose a winner at random. This giveaway is open internationally.
