Previously, I had written an entry on handcrafted necklaces with a single stalk of flower in them (you can read the entry here). This time round, the wonderful duo behind WHYNOTSPEAKUP has come up with yet another concept and of course, am equally unique and eye-catching collection of necklaces.
"You can't always see me, but I'm always there."
Initially, I had trouble making out the shape of this necklace and simply couldn't tell what it stands for, unlike the first collection which was pretty straightforward - flowers that never withered symbolising an eternity of love. It wasn't until I looked up WHYNOTSPEAKUP's website that I figured the concept behind this necklace and as always, their concepts behind their creations never fail.
Based on the quote "You can't always see me, but I'm always there", the true character of this series of necklaces cannot actually be figured until you shine light on it, and that's when the shadow casted reveals the true meaning of it
I picked the Fluerlumiere necklace from the series which actually means 'light flower' in English. Of course, other than the 'fleur' necklaces from this Sentinels series, there is another variation which is actually the 'avion' necklace, which casts a shadow of that of a fighter jet when light is shone on it.
Does anyone see the flower in the shadow cast? Flowers to me, symbolises love, care and concern (and anything positive in fact), and as the light casts over the necklace to form the shadow that takes the shape of a flower, it symbolises the devotion to watch over, love and protect the person who's wearing the necklace.
Of course, the gold plated bar in the centre actually stands for the person wearing the necklace. Positioned right in the centre of the necklace, it can be seen as if the love, care and protection is surrounding the centrepiece.
Somehow, necklaces from WHYNOTSPEAKUP never fail to make me feel blessed wearing them. A simple necklace yet the most symbolic one, which makes it a genuinely precious gift that holds great meaning for both the giver and receiver.
