Women love getting real flowers and jewelry from their loved ones so it a huge high when you receive a gift that combines both. While I was working on my order for real roses bridal jewelry I realised that making jewelry from real Flowers can be really refreshing. It so therapeutic at the same time challenging as everything has to be designed and planned beforehand. But it is so totally worth the effort as it puts a (really) big smile on the receiver’s face.
So as its the season of love, I thought I would spread some by showing you how you can easily make a beautiful real rose ring for that special person in your life. These rings are not just for valentine’s day but can be given as spring gifts, party favours or can be made in an activity (day camp) for young girls.

You don’t have to just use roses for the ring, you can go with seasonal flowers or those that are the favourite of the person that you are going to gift it to or something from your garden; just remember that the flowers have to be flat, firm and fresh. You can also refrigerate the finished ring by storing it in an open plastic bag (no ziplock) for a few hours to keep it fresh.
