These Irish made solid silver forget-me-not earrings are inspired by the wild Atlantic way.  I love forget-me-nots - which must be the prettiest wild flower ever. I remember the beautiful pale blue flowers from my childhood in West Cork, on the wild Atlantic way, when they bloomed from April through to September.  My Aunt would tell me that during medieval times, a knight and his lady were walking beside a river.  He picked a posy of flowers for her but as he leant over to collect more, his heavy armour caused him to unbalance and he fell into the river where he started to drown.  As she looked on in horror, he threw her the posy of flowers and shouted out 'Forget-me-not'.

I loved that story and didn't realise how sad it was until much later!
