The art of creating beads from flowers began when nuns spent hours cooking rose petals down to pulp in cast iron skillets. Once the pulp was sticky enough to hold together, the nuns would roll the pulp into beads and allow them to dry. Once dried, the beads would be strung into rosaries.
At Queen & i we have improved and refined the process of making beads out of flowers. A big part of our success is due in part to the way we use freeze-drying to preserve the flowers’ original colors. Like those nuns, we take painstaking care to create each hand-rolled bead, which we create in a variety of colors.
Within 30 days after your event is over, you would make an appointment to come in and select which pieces of jewelry you would like. We’ll guide you through the process of selecting the different options available to you, per the types of jewelry you like.
Once we know exactly what you’re looking for, we will create your custom beads and string them with the highest levels of sterling silver findings. This means that you will have a true one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art that won’t be found anywhere else.
We ask for payment to be made in full upon ordering your jewelry, and your "reserve the date” deposit will apply to the final balance.
