physical_description
A slender, curving stem of yucca made of patinated silver. Six clusters of five or three faceted peridot drops form the flowers which are spaced along the stem, with four single peridot drops as buds at the top. A simple gold pin follows the line of the stem at the back.

public_access_description
Luz Camino is a Spanish jewellery designer who works with an unusual array of precious materials, making one-off pieces and limited editions. Her series of different wayside flowers dates from the late 1990s and early 2000s and each may be worn alone or as part of a bouquet of similar stems. Flowers have long been a prominent theme in jewellery design but these, with their straggling stems and roughened surfaces, are a freer interpretation than is usual and celebrate the wildness of nature. The patinated silver and flawed gemstones convey an air of shabby grandeur and the illusion of age – as though they might have been worn and loved for several generations.
