Wearing memorial jewellery made from real flower petals is a way to feel closer to someone who has left you too soon. When someone close to you dies, it is important to find ways to actively mourn and grieve their loss. Wearing jewellery made from special flowers will be a daily reminder of the person and will help you to acknowledge your feelings. You can use flowers from the memorial service, a dried flower that the person once gave you, flowers from the person's garden or simply the person's favourite flower.
Flower petal beads can be made from clay or other materials mixed with crushed or broken up flower petals. There are many jewellery makers that specialise in this process, or you can make these clay beads at home. Any flower type will do, but using especially fragrant flowers can make beads smell nice. Most beads will keep the colour of the flower, or there are ways to make black beads from flowers. Beads are made into jewellery or rosaries.
Whole flowers can be showcased in between glass or set in resin. The process preserves the flower's natural aspect and its vibrant colour. Pressed flowers make beautiful necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. This method is commonly used to create matching jewellery sets, and is also popular for men's items because pressed flowers can be made into cuff links or even non-jewellery accessories like bookmarks.
Permanent Fresh Petals
Real flower petal jewellery is delicate and rare. Talented craftsmen are able to create these special pieces using an in-depth process that preserves and protects your flowers. Typical flowers that are used are orchids and roses. Dried flowers will not work and not all flower types are durable enough to withstand this process, so talk to a specialised jeweller to see if your special flower will work.
Dipped Flower Petals
Flower petals and leaves can be dipped in real gold, silver or resin to create stunning jewellery pieces. While these charms can be made into typical jewellery such as necklaces and earrings, they can also be made into broaches or hair clips. Petals dipped in 24k gold make especially elegant pieces. Since the dipping liquid is thin and delicate, the intricacies of leaves and petals can still be seen. Aspen leaves have traditionally been dipped in gold and made into jewellery, but any leaf or petal will do.
