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.
