The wedding industry is in full bloom as brides are arranging flowers in much more than just their bouquet.

Brides are showcasing roses, daises, irises, carnations and more in statement jewelry designs. Incorporate flowers into jewelry with floral-shaped beads, components, clasps, pendants, brooches and more. Designers can also create blooming elements within a piece by wire-wrapping cultured freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystal or other beads of choice in floral shapes. Flowers add color and dimension, a natural femininity and visually pleasing effect to jewelry.
Brides can incorporate their birth month flower into wedding day jewelry and use in combination with their future spouses' birth month flower as well, to symbolize the union.
