Lily of the valley, Convallaria majalis, thrives in verdant woodlands, filling the spring air with its sweet scent and stirring anticipation of the approaching summer. The plant sends up slender stems with two broad leaves and delicate white flowers. For goldsmith Tony Granholm, Finland’s national flower brings to mind his grandmother, who used to say that lilies of the valley are at their best in the forest. It took years before he was able to capture the essence of something as living and perfect as his favourite flower into a piece of jewellery. This collection of jewellery has immortalised the delicate bell-shaped flower and graceful movement of the lily of the valley in gold, silver and bright bronze.
