We are able to use flowers to create wedding flower petal jewelry, memorial flower petal jewelry, keepsake flower petal jewelry.
Color: The color of your Bloombeads jewelry will be the color of the flowers you send to us. We can create single color jewelry or combine up to five (5) colors. We are able to “brighten” the colors of already dried petals – just let us know you would like this option, there is no additional charge.
How many blooms? Most Bloombeads jewelry can be created from the petals in a standard bloom. The flower we use as an example is a rose. A standard tea rose will have enough petals to make 2-3 beads. We recommend sending one (1) flower for each color you would like included in each piece of jewelry. Bead bracelets - send 2-3 standard blooms for each color to be included. Rosaries - send 5-7 blooms of each color to be included. Feel free to call with any questions about quantity of flowers.
