In celebration of this beautiful day celebrating earth and nature, I have a special treat - a great giveaway from Flora Beauty!

I asked Mirjam how she began making her natural flower and plant jewelry, and this is what she said:
Well, my mother taught me a lot about herbal remedies and natural plants. We've made plenty of greeting cards with dried flowers. But once read the greetings cards usually stays somewhere in the storing boxes with other things. Not so long ago, maybe a year ago, I have started, for my first time, to make botanical jewelry. I have tried to keep the lovely plants and flower forever in a way that people can bring the nature with her whenever she goes. Embedded them in resin seemed a very good ideal to me and not many people were doing this. I have never thought that this will sprouted so much passion inside of me. And my first results as a self - taught was so great! I was continuing with the creativity and making pieces that were more and more beautiful.
Does Mirjam have a favorite plant or flower and why? This is how she answered:
This is hard to answer. All of the flowers are beautiful. And you can make jewelry from all of the flowers. Perhaps my answer could be: yellow rose. Because when the yellow petals are embedded in the resin, they give such a beautiful sunshine color! And this is why I am giving away small studs made from yellow rose petals to one of your readers.
What is her one most favorite thing about nature?
That it guides us. Sometimes when we do not know the answers to our questions, we can find them in the nature. Human beings are part of the nature, have the same life's cycle than nature.
I asked Mirjam if there was anything in particular that she would like readers to know about her handmade items and/or shop. This is her reply:
My jewelry is made completely from natural materials: wood, pressed flowers and plants, non-toxic, hard and clear resin. The flowers will not fade away, will not change the color and will remain their beauty forever!
