January - Snowdrops on Garnet


Snowdrops painted on garnet red, the birth flower and birth stone for January.

The name ‘garnet’ derives from the Latin word for ‘grain’ due to the similarity between their rounded crystals and a pomegranate's seeds. Garnet is the official birthstone for January and signifies protection, friendship, trust, commitment, and love. Garnet is also said to keep the wearer safe during travel.

Snowdrops represent hope, resilience and renewal. At a time of year when very few flowers are in bloom, January babies are thought to be fiercely loyal and dedicated to their family and friends.

This mixed media painting is A5, created using acrylic, watercolour and pencil. Each painting in the set is finished in a beautiful double mounted, bespoke frame in navy blue by Anchovy and Oyster.

Finished frame size 305mm x 377mm

* A very small limited edition run of each birth flower will be available as A5 prints later on in the summer. These will just be prints, unmounted and unframed. There will only ever be 12 framed originals.
