Meet The Team








Cristina and Her Daughters

Owner, Designer, Creator

I'm the proud mother of three daughters. I’m half Peruvian and half Polish. I’m fluent in Spanish. I have the perfect job; I play with flowers all day creating something new and different everyday. I love what I do…I hope you do too. 


Preservation Specialist, Designer

I process all the incoming flowers, handling all means of preservation. I'm also finishing my PhD. in cognitive neuroscience and enjoying the wonderment that comes with being a father. 


Office Manager

I am originally from the Buffalo, NY area and have been living in Columbia for two years! With an educational background in communication and media arts, I have loved being able to assist and add to the creative process for all jewelry and floral design at Bellabeads.



Born and raised in South Carolina. I am a recent graphic design graduate of USC. At Flowers Forever I design Bellabeads and create our pressed and freeze-dried designs.


Design Manager

I'm a Columbia native with a bachelor's degree in art who recently moved back from Portland. At Flowers Forever I assist in the process of making Bellabeads jewelry, as well as the preservation and arrangement of floral designs.


Shipping Specialist and Artisan

I am originally from the Carolina’s. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. At Flowers Forever I help in the design process of the beads and carefully package your petal jewelry for delivery.  




I am originally from Peru and raised in New York City. I have lived here for a year now and enjoy discovering new places to hang out. Here at Flowers Forever, I help in the designing of the bellabeads and creating the final touch to all our pieces.                                    


Executive Assistant

My role involves overseeing the production of goods, and services. As acting Operations Manager, HR and Sales, my job is to make sure our organization is running smoothly, while giving efficient and quality service that meets the expectations and needs of customers and clients.


Shop Greeter

I have been living in the Columbia area for about four years now. Cristina hired me to greet the customers, and it's been the most fulfilling step in my career that I could have possibly imagined. 



I am a local girl of eleven years. My purpose at Flowers Forever is to keep the shop running smoothly. Though my good looks may make me appear delicate, I'm not afraid to bark orders when necessary.
