Just when you think you've seen every kind of decorative paperweight out there, Hafod Grange gives you some to really marvel at. What makes these paperweights so interesting is that they feature preserved flowers on the inside that seem to be frozen in time.

In addition to offering paperweights filled with flowers like daffodils, nigella, heather and orchids, Hafod Grange also turns thistles and weeds like dandelions into artful pieces for your desk. As for how the flowers get inside of the resin orbs unscathed, Hafod Grange creates a sense of mystery by saying "Don't ask how we do it." However, the process involves casting dried botanical in clear resin before they are polished to perfection.
