In addition to its beauty, autumn crocus is also the source of saffron used in cooking as a seasoning and coloring agent. Saffron or also known as safran is the most expensive spice by weight. [Wikipedia, wordprofit.com]
Can you believe that it takes 100,000 flowers to produce 2lb of saffron?
A lilac crocus was the first bloom in my garden which was the inspiration to A Cup of Sparkle amethyst necklace and earrings. The faceted drop shaped amethyst gemstones are paired with detailed sterling silver caps. Simple and elegant... Crocus is known with its ability to thrive in snow, mud and ice. This is what this necklace and earrings represent: the positive energy and being strong. This necklace and earrings are a combination of nature and arts that I am happy to share its inspiration story with you.
