Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences you will ever have to go through. The void left by their absence seems like it will never be filled. However, even though our dearly departed have left us, we may be able to take comfort in the memories that we created with them while they were here with us. That’s why Flowers Forever is in the memorial jewelry business. We create beautiful one of a kind keepsakes that are as unique as the life that they are honoring.
If you’d like to preserve flowers from a funeral you have a few options. We’ve laid out our recommendations here for you.
Dry the Flowers Yourself
Your first option is to dry the flowers yourself. Drying flowers isn’t that difficult, and you can find directions on how to do it here. However, without proper freeze-drying equipment these tend to be very delicate and do not always last a lifetime. It is a beautiful process that can help with your mourning, but if you want to preserve your flowers in a way that lasts a lifetime we recommend choosing a different option.
Professional Flower Preservation
We offer a variety of professional flower preservation services that will create a beautiful memorial to your dearly departed. Choose from Victorian Pressed Floral Preservation, Flower Petal Monograms, or Freeze Dried Floral Preservation. No matter the style you choose these will be sure to last your lifetime. They make beautiful family heirlooms and gifts for loved ones as well.
If your flowers are older and withered, or you don’t want to preserve an entire bouquet, you also have the option of turning your flowers into Memorial Jewelry. We have hundreds of styles to choose from including charm beads, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, gold jewelry, and men’s jewelry.
Cremation Ash Jewelry
Using a small amount of cremation ashes, we can create a custom memorial jewelry piece that you can wear in order to keep your loved one next to you at all times. We can add ashes to any memorial jewelry item in our collection. We can use just ashes to create a lovely sepia bead, combine ashes to your flowers, or use flowers of our own if you wish to have a colorful bead.
