Once upon a time, there lived a young woman who grew tired of her heirloom-filled jewelry box and all its too-precious trappings.
So she rolled up her sleeves and took things outside. Such is the tale of Flora Lam’s earthy beautiful jewelry debut.
The Toronto-based design enthusiast (and self-professed city damsel) looked to historical literature, fantasy, and the sea — specifically, weekend fly-fishing trips with her husband — for inspiration.
Rose gold-plated Veil, Sail, and Pector rings (a.k.a. The Fly-Fisherman’s Wife mini collection) are named for underwater creatures’ anatomical parts. Lam’s Dweller collection — gold-plated lion head and wheat stalk, crustacean, and scale pendant necklaces strung from metallic woven cords — keeps things grounded and pays ode to favorite worldwide travels.
And that, as they say, is N. Historiae.
