Flower Charm - Crocus Glyph - Clear Magnolia
2x3 hardwood charm with brass ringlet and macrame hanger
The humble Crocus is a sign of the coming of both spring and fall. While the autumn crocus (saffron) is the worlds most expensive spice, the spring crocus is one of the earliest pollen and nectar sources available for hardy bees and hummingbirds, when the nights are still cold but the days have hints of spring.
Crocus' are a symbol of youth and joy, their pleasant fragrance was purported to inspire love and feelings of affection. Wreaths of crocus were once woven to adorn those looking for love and celebrating the youthful nature of spring.
The wood from this charm is from a downed limb from our giant saucer magnolia out back. It was aged and dried in my shop before being cut into blanks for these charms. What better wood to use for a flower charm than a tree that blooms?
