Crafted with passion

The design of the unique and exclusive Centenary Flanders Fields Poppy Necklace is based on a 100 year old dried and flattened real poppy from Private Len Smith’s diary. Private Smith, a veteran who lived until 1974, plucked the poppy from No Man’s Land in 1915 and preserved it in his illustrated diary. Artist Stephen Allen then created a sculpture of the poppy for TMB Art Metal of London to use as the model for the necklace.
