MORE ABOUT MY HANDMADE CRUSHED ROSE REMEMBRANCE JEWELRY

If you’re like me and many of the people I’ve asked, you likely have a few dried flowers from a loved one’s service. And they’re either in a vase on display or where mine are currently — stashed away in a plastic bag in a keepsake box I rarely open.

Dried flowers are one of those things that you don’t ever want to part with because they remind you of your loved one, but there comes a point when you don’t know what to do with them, right? Then the flowers end up right where mine are, out of sight. So here was my thinking:  What if instead, you took a few of those rose petals or dried flowers from the arrangement and turned them into something not only visible but wearable?

This is how the idea of the remembrance jewelry was conceived and to be honest, it was over five years ago when I made my first piece of jewelry using crushed rose petals and turning them into beads.

It was in January when I was going through some of my old photos in an effort to organize them. You know, new year, fresh start? I like to archive photos of past jewelry designs and that’s when I came across photos of one of my custom orders where I crushed rose petals, turned the petals into beads and made jewelry out of it. I’m not even sure where the idea came from or who I made it for, but the photos caught my eye and got me thinking that this is something I should offer.

Fast forwarding to earlier this month, someone reached out to me to see if I could again make some sort of jewelry using dried rose petals from their late grandmother’s service. That’s when I realized there surely is a market for something like this. And I know from personal experience that I have plenty of dried roses stashed away in my keepsake boxes that I’d love to do something with.

So this week, I made not only bracelets for a customer, but I made myself a necklace using some of the dried roses from both my grandmother and mother-in-law’s services. Here are a few pictures of the process.
