Floral Waves is inspired by Japanese culture. Layers of concentric circles portray waves, which represent the ebb and flow of the tide providing strength, security and surges of good luck. The symbol was originally used on ancient maps to China to depict the sea before becoming a popular motif in Japan to decorate kimonos, ceramics and lacquerware. Colourful tropical birds and flowering magnolias, which symbolise beauty and gentleness, reflect the connection with and a love of nature.
A base of blue silk waves enhances the connection with water and evokes a calming, peaceful state of mind. The blue waves provide a perfect backdrop for colourful, intricate flora and fauna details etched in gold to stand out.
'When there’s an opportunity to add birds to a design, I'm going to take it. Whether it’s cranes for long life or peacocks for beauty. In graceful flight or perched on a branch, they’re an upbeat and joyful reminder of nature in art. Birds make it easy to bring the outdoors in.'Wendy
