I love sunflowers because they are very cheerful happy-looking flowers. The bright warm color of the petals reminds me of an endless summer day, my favorite season where the sun is high above the sky and the flowers bloom.
“I don't think there's anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. For me, that's because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that's such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life. ~ Helen Mirren
I was inspired to capture the essence of the beauty of the sunflower by creating the Girasole ring. The golden amulet features sparkly diamonds among the petals. The intricate shape of the setting resembles sun rays that brighten up the fields.
