The Magnolia was one of my first original designs upon launching my own line of jewelry back in 2012. I drew the sketch during my down time before I ever even thought of starting my own business. Therefore, this design was made purely from my love of drawing inspired by the joyful memories I have climbing magnolia trees in my school's yard.
Magnolia's are certainly emit a "yin" feminine energy. The color white has usually always represented purity, peace, grace and nobility. This is why I use white colored pearls with the magnolia in my necklaces, to enhance the spirit of the white symbolism.
