On Etsy since 2008

Bellabeads-A division of Flowers Forever

Cristina Segarra, began her journey as a creative entrepreneur over twenty-five years ago. A native of Lima, Peru, Cristina moved to the United States as a child. Her abundant creativity led to her first floral preservation business, Flowers Forever, which she launched in 1994. Clients from around the world trust Cristina to dry and preserve floral pieces from important days in their lives such as weddings, anniversaries, and births. The success of Flowers Forever allowed Cristina to start a new division of the company, Bellabeads, which specializes in creating one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces using mementos such as wedding flowers, honeymoon sand, pet fur, and ashes. Each earring, necklace, and ring tells a unique story in her customer’s life.

Cristina’s retail store has been a Columbia, South Carolina staple for over eighteen years, while her creativity and design skills have made her one of the leading custom jewelry designers in the country. When she is not working on a new design, Cristina enjoys spending time with her husband, three grown daughters, and her beautiful grandson.

~~~~~Bellabeads~~~~~~
Always looking for a new creative outlet, now Cristina has incorporated jewelry making to floral preservation by making beads out of flower petals. These beads become beautiful and unique jewelry for you to enjoy and share.

Cristina creates each bead by hand, while her talented staff helps her complete the process of making the beads into jewelry. Even though Cristina has expanded her services she maintains her fastidious dedication to providing high quality products. All of our jewelry is made using .925 sterling silver.We can use fresh petals from a recent event, or dried petals from a flower you have saved for years.Your saved flowers become beautiful jewelry you can wear.
