Amy’s Rosebud Collection has arrived just in time for Valentine’s Day. Roses are perfectly suited to jewellery, being ancient symbols of love and beauty. Amy’s delicate paper roses are hand painted in a variety of bold colours.

The enamel paint used is oil based which strengthens the paper and makes them waterproof. They are attached to a stem of silver which points the flower to its optimum viewing position, ensuring the rose is seen in its full bloom and showing off its flash of colour.
