Please read everything below, and if you have any further questions, please read the Q&A section on my site.I'm keeping my website open for people needing to get orders in for Christmas!

Hello! My name is Carol Ann, and thank you for stopping by my shop/studio! I have created over a thousand keepsakes for individuals online, in my home town, and surrounding areas! Unique handcrafted memorial jewelry, for any occasion. Dried/silk flowers from a wedding, anniversary, funeral of a loved one, child's birth/hospital flowers, a child's first haircut, your pet's hair, cremations, holiday flowers, and more! I'm a one woman show, so I directly handle all flowers, orders, messages and creating the keepsakes. It takes a good bit of time, so please be patient if you don't hear from me right away. I give each customer the same individual attention, and sometimes that can lead to delays in responses. I am open minded to customized orders as well! I specialize in unique memorial Sterling silver and fashion jewelry for your family and friends, to remember special events, or loss of a loved one. Check me out on Facebook and Instagram!

Each keepsake takes time and patience to create. My processing time is 3-6 weeks from the time I RECEIVE your flowers, how many orders are in front of you, before your order is ready to be shipped. You can find your estimated shipping date on your order invoice in your Etsy account or in the invoice e-mail. (The Etsy ship by date is based on the day you placed the order though, not the day I RECEIVED your flowers.)

You can mail me your silk flowers, FULLY DRIED flowers, and clothing/fabric. You can check out my FAQ section for more answers and you can also message me directly.

Please use the "note to seller" box with comments or requests for your order when you go to check out. This note attaches itself to your order and is by far the best way to complete a custom request as conversation messages on Etsy can be unreliable and do not stay with your order, OR leaving a note in with your box of flowers is great too!

Please make sure your petals are FULLY dried before mailing them, to prevent mold damage! 😊 the best way to dry your petals/leafs (my opinion) is to take all of the petals/leafs off of the stem and lay them across a paper towel to air dry for 8+ days until fully crisp like potato chips!

OR for an even better color turn out... you can buy silica on Amazon to dry out your petals! You will do the same steps as above, taking your petals apart, lay them in a deep dish of some kind, and pour the silica on top of the loose petals! Let them dry that way for over a week. This way he has the most vibrant drying process of the flowers. Remember white flowers still turn a creamy tan white, and red flowers can still dry a blackish red.


Mail your dried flowers, hair, silk flowers, clothing, cremations, and fabric in a padded envelope to:

On Etsy since 2014

I enjoy creating art.

I started making memorial jewelry in 2014, when I lost a parent to suicide. My step father, and my real father are a huge inspiration with my memorial jewelry. I will post other pieces of jewelry on my page that are not memorial related, from time to time! I hope you all enjoy! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Due to the nature of custom-made memorial keepsakes, returns and exchanges are not offered. However, your satisfaction means a lot to me, so please contact me if you have any issues with your order. Thank you!

How many flowers do I need to collect for my order? Which flowers work the best?

This is a tough one. A few roses/carnations (3-5) can make many pieces of jewelry. You can use any flowers. The flowers that don’t seem to do as well are snap dragons, hydrangeas, and dahlia (with my experience), but still can be used, they just need a lot longer to dry. If you use sunflowers or lilies, please provide anywhere from (6-10), because when they dry, they shrink in size.

Can I choose my bead’s color (clay pieces)?

Yes. I have several colors you can choose from, but remember that I may not be able to create a specific shade. I will try my best, to get to the color of your desire! I will not keep fixing an order if the color is not a perfect shade. Working with clay, creating the correct shade is by chance! Please, remember your flower petals can darken/change the color of the clay. The pieces of your flowers can also darken from the heat, when being created. Your resin pieces' will be the color of the flowers you had provided.

(RESIN PIECES) Resin pieces will be the color of the flowers petals. Cremations usually have a stone/marble look to them. Any questions, please message me! :)

Do you only use flowers in your memorial jewelry?

No. I also can also use cremations, artificial flowers, pet hair, human hair, sand, shells, and clothing! If you have a material of some kind that you would like to include in a piece, but you aren't sure, please contact me! :) (Hair and artificial flowers can only be in the resin jewelry, not clay.)

Have very old dried flowers, can they be used?

Yes, already dried or older flowers will be fine! Some many have collected dust, or a little mold, but we can still make you something beautiful! I will pick through the flowers, and choose the best petals. Remember old flowers can darken your clay beads, and may make them appear to have a dusty look to the clay.

Custom and personalized orders

Each keepsake comes in it's own gift box, unless you specify otherwise. If your order is being shipped to a friend or family member, you can leave them a personal message in the "note to seller" box at check out. I will print your message and include it with the completed order when shipped. I also can hand write you a sympathy card, anniversary card, and etc. instead, with your personal message. You also can send me a hand written card from yourself with the flowers/ashes/hair, and I will include your personal card with the order when it ships. :) Any further questions, please ask!

Care instructions

CLEANING/POLISHING your Resin: It's inevitable that the shine of your resin pieces will fade over time with heavy wear. One of the products that work well with polishing your resin pieces is NOVUS 7136 Plastic Polish Kit - 2 oz. You are able to purchase it through Amazon! :)

Sterling Silver Rings: DO NOT put rings in jewelry cleaner. The chemicals will eat at the stone!

Clay Pieces: DO NOT get wet. Please take jewelry off before you shower or go swimming. The water could soften the clay.
