Forget-Me-Not Flower Charm in Custom Color Enamel
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.
- Excerpt from W.H. Auden's Funeral Blues
Mourning Jewelry to Wear Everyday
On one side, a delicate hand engraved forget-me-not flower rests within a light blue enamel color. On the reverse, a nod to W.H. Auden's poem Funeral Blues, where the tiny words "My north, my south, my east, my west" cascade down in a ribbon. The symbolism is manifold: the forget-me-not flower is one that has been used in jewelry and art for centuries, honoring those living and lost whom we love most dearly. Auden's poem speaks to the depth of grief and love as well, in a way that's honest and beautiful.
This charm is small enough to wear each and everyday by itself on the chain or layered with other pieces in a charm holder. Read more about the design of this new charm.
Enamel Color and Size
A darling little charm, this piece measures 10 mm x 8 mm in the enamel area, and hangs 15mm (a bit over 1/2") from the chain. You can choose your enamel color - the baby blue is listed here and you can see additional enamel colors in the listings for the Bowie charm, mourning ring and pet memorial ring.
