The Wildflowers Alchemist

I thought of this collection as an ode to the incredible properties of the botanical world.
In every natural sanctuary is intrinsic an atavic magic that takes its roots from the very spring of the Earth. Every flower, every herb, every wild element is powerful for this very mystical essence, and since the origin of times, men -and women- have been fascinated by it. “An alchemist is one who transforms everything with love”, and although he doesn’t have full comprehension or understanding of this essence, he perceives its magic and truth.

× Rosehip ×

Since my early age, my grandparents used to tell me about their lives. Their narrations projected me into their age, into a still rural, poor and peasant reality. They were used to fend for themselves with what was available, to collect wild herbs and get over injuries using plants.
Part of this knowledge has been handed down to me. One of my favorite harvests with my grandmother and my mom took place every fall.
As the days shortened, when the morning was misty due to the frost of the night before and autumn was declining towards the cold winter, that was the perfect time to harvest rosehips.
Three generations of women, baskets in hand, we walked along those well-known paths, where we knew that wild roses grew on the edge of the track. And there we stocked up on those little nuggets of red gold, to make infuses, decoctions and jams in the winter.
Rosehips have multiple beneficial properties in medicine and are believed to wash away stress and restore harmony. They always fascinated me and still delight me to this day.

This hollow formed necklace celebrates this strong benefic plant • hand forged rose • watermelon tourmaline.

× Lavender ×

Lavender is the perfect example of a warm powerful plant. It grows in full sun, and being native of the Mediterranean coasts, it tolerates dryness admirably.

Some of the earliest recorded uses of lavender are by the Roman soldiers who used the wild-growing plant to perfume their bathwater and wash their clothes.

Whoever has ever walked through a lavender field, or simply next to one or two of these purple bushes, will remember it’s smell. The scent of lavender is relaxing and energising and finds great use in aromatherapy to help recover from stressful or depressing situations.

Once again this herb deserved a hollow formed pendant, with a bright cut of watermelon tourmaline gently placed on a silver half moon.

× Chamomile ×

Roman Chamomile, also known in the alchemy as “blood of Hestia”, is a plant of the family of the Asteraceae that takes its name from the Greek word χαμαίμηλον, meaning “ground apple”, probably because of its fragrance that reminds of apples.

Chamomile has been associated since the ancient times with the sun, and was frequently used in rituals to honour the Egyptian Sun God Ra and the Roman one, Sol.

Chamomile infuses relax body and mind and help to get a good night’s sleep. Both chamomile and citrines are believed to protect from nightmares.
Furthermore this herb has been proved to be very effective against anxiety, muscle pain and inflammation.

Chamomile is also related to the Tarot card of the Sun – promoter of communication, positive and creative energy – and with the card of the Heremit, standing for discretion and search for inner wisdom.

On the other hand, “citrine is is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving.”

Three pairs of chamomile earrings will be available. Each chamomile silhouette has been hand pierced from sterling silver and soldered onto sturdy oval hoops. Four tiny citrines for each pair make the flowers’ heads shine bright.

× Daffodil ×

The daffodil symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings because it is one of the first perennials to bloom after the winter frost.

The most know legend regarding this flower is the Greek myth of Narcissus.
Narcissus was the son of River God Cephisus and nymph Lyriope and he was known for his extraordinary beauty.
When Narcissus was sixteen the Nymph Echo felt madly in love with him, but was left her heartbroken by his refusal.
Nemesis, though, the Goddess of Revenge, heard the story and decided to punish Narcissus.
One day, he chanced to see his reflection in a pool of water and fell in love with it.
Obsessed with his own image, but never able to touch it, he wasted away and eventually died of hunger and thirst.
At that spot, a flower bloomed to honour his beauty and leave an immortal sign behind: the narcissus, or daffodil.

Narcissi flowers are also seen to represent creativity, inspiration, awareness and inner reflection, forgiveness, and vitality.
Despite the issues of Narcissus and Echo, daffodils still appear in some folklore as representative of holding a lover in high regard.

The collection will have 2 pair of daffodil earrings and a necklace, all three embellished with the warmest dangling citrines. There will also be two sturdy statement rings featuring tiny citrines. The rings will fit a size 6 and a size 7 3/4.

× Lily of the Valley ×

“Lilies of the valley are sometimes called Fairy Cups, because the flowers look like cups the fairies have hung up while dancing.

The flowers are said to ring when fairies sing and to form ladders fairies use to reach reeds from which they weave their cradles. 

According to folklore, this plant blooms on the grave of someone who was executed for a crime they did not commit. It is thought that planting them in the garden will protect the home from ghosts and evil spirits.

The scent of this flower is said to attract nightingales and to give people the power to see a better world. In the language of flowers, liles-of-the-valley represent the return of happiness. They are generally a symbol of humility, purity and sweetness.”

This study ring will fit a size 7 1/2.

× Wild fern ×

I couldn’t make it without the ferns.
My dear beloved leafy friends.

Ferns have many magical uses. They have the reputation of protecting the home and preventing evil spirits from entering.

Only some few of our native Ferns are known to possess medicinal virtues, however native Americans had an established tradition for the use of this plants to benefit our health. For example a species of maiden hair fern is both useful against rheumatism and asthma.

Ferns owe their name to the word “feather,” because of the pinnate leaves.

One leafy ring will be available in a size 7 1/4.

× Iris ×

Irises have since ancient times symbolized faith, Valor and wisdom.

Iris takes its name from the Greek word from “rainbow”, which is also the name of the Goddess of the Rainbow and herald of Hera.

The iris, though, is a Moon plant. Its roots, dried and powdered, are believed to be good for digging deep into the subconscious and uprooting what is hidden.

In these earrings the lunar theme reoccurs in the fool moon behind the flower.

The earrings also features two tiny amethysts. Paired with the symbolic value of the irises, that bring alignment with the inner truth and an energetic state of balance, amethyst is an excellent focal point for meditations regarding any spiritual matter, especially death and rebirth.

These are just some of the pieces that will e available in the Wildflowers Alchemist collection, on May 20th at noon pst.

A big hug from Italy


Hi and welcome! My name is Alea and I am the one girl behing Pluvial Fern. Everything you see here, every piece of jewelry, every photograph, every post, is the result of my work. My sincere hope is to transmit you those values and inspirations that are the deep engines that aninated Pluvial Fern in the first place! ~ I've always love arts. Since childhood I used to spend a lot of time into wood working, book stitching, sculpting, painting and more. But being a full time student never allowed me to deepen in one of these crafts. This was until I "accidentally" discovered metalsmithing: it was love at first sight; a whole new world of opportunities unfolding in my yet inexpert hands! Being a 100% self taught maker, it was extremely tough at the beginning, and - I'm not gonna lie - frustrating once in a while. But after months of researches and over a year of practice, I finally managed to become familiar and master this medium. That's how "Pluvial Fern" was born. Fine metals and natural gems are the most duttile materials in terms of possibilities and allow me to transfer my love for wilderness and Earth into wearable art. It's exactly because of my love for the Planet, that I donate 5% of my annual income to nature conservation! My hope is to give you the best experience as customers, as well as to leave you with a piece of jewelry that communicates the passion and gratitude that went into creating it. And maybe, that tiny treasure will act as a reminder of the astounding beauty of Nature that we're all so intrinsically connected to.

    I saw some of your whales but waited one second to long to get one ordered. Are you going to do some more?

    • pluvialfern

      Hi sweetheart 🤗 yes, I will make the whales again likely in February 2020! But if you don’t want to wait this long, I’d be happy to custom make a piece for you. I hope this was helpful 🥰
