If your yard is like mine, the tulips are blooming, the daffodils are open and yes … there is pollen everywhere! But blow off that yellow coating and check out the vibrant colors of the beautiful spring flowers. They are absolutely some of my favorite flowers, and they make gorgeous jewelry.

That’s right, there is no need to go buy flowers to make a timeless keepsake, many lovely colors are right outside your front door. The bright yellows, reds, and purples transform into incredible pieces of jewelry. All you have to do is clip the flowers from the yard and leave the rest to us. Any of these spring flowers would look so great on our new cuffs and would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift for Mom!

Yes, only six more weeks to Mother’s Day, but with a bit of work on your part, we can create her a piece from spring flower that she will treasure for a lifetime! To learn more simply contact us today at 404-644-8672 or visit http://www.fleurenasci.com.

March Partnership Spotlight

This month I would like to introduce you to Cochran Funeral Home of Blairsville, GA. After meeting the home’s manager, Brendan Burkhead, at an Expo, I was so excited about his enthusiasm of Fleurenasci. He loved the concept so much, that he actually had an order placed before our partnership had become official! Wow, no wonder they have been in business as long as they have!

No stranger to the funeral home business, Cochran Funeral Home of Blairsville was originally established in 1950, as Akins Funeral Home, owned by Pat Akins. In 1967, Raymond Nix bought in to the business, and it became known as Akins-Nix Funeral Home. The original funeral home was located on Highway 129 south and re-located to Kimsey Street in Blairsville. Due to the retiring of Mr. Akins and the failing health of Mr. Nix, they sold the funeral home and Union Memory Gardens Cemetery to Steve and Max Cochran in 1981. After purchasing the funeral home, a larger office was added, along with another layout room, a selection room, and other minor remodeling was done.

In 1993, a new building was built, the current funeral home, located on Highway 129 and corner of Hunt-Martin Street. Steve and Max felt this building could better accommodate the growing community, and they could serve family’s needs better in the new location.

 

The funeral home now has locations in Blue Ridge, Hiawassee, McCaysville, and Murphy, NC. The Cochran family takes great pride in the fact they have helped families from all over the area and from all walks of life. They are known for their industry leadership, their high integrity and their dedication to excellence. These are the exact same qualities I see with Cochran when working with them on a professional level. I am thrilled to have them on board as a partner and look forward to a long lasting working relationship.

Daffodil: The Flower of Spring

125-624x467

Wait, did we have a winter? I can’t believe the temperatures are rising and all around spring is in the air, especially when it comes to flowers. And what flower often reminds us of spring? The daffodil and that just happens to be the birth flower for March. I adore this spring flower and everything it represents for not only the month but also the season! The daffodil, which can also be called a Jonquil or Narcissus, is most commonly known for its yellow flower. I just love to drive down the road and see them popping up in front of homes, in fields and landscaped areas. To me they just say SPRING!

To many Christians the daffodil is also a symbol of Easter as it is believed that the flower first bloomed during the time of Christ’s Resurrection. The legend says it was in the Garden of Gethsemane during the actual time of The Last Supper which symbolized great sorrow and hope for much better things to follow.  I can see the bright yellow flowers throughout the garden.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the daffodil means unequaled love; the sun is always shining whenever your significant other is around. After I read this, I thought how fitting that a flower with that meaning would represent Easter.

The daffodil is a beautiful cut flower for your home and its bright vivid color makes a beautiful bead for your add-a-bead bracelet. I have even got a few photos of some of the pieces I have created from the daffodil. So after you enjoy the flower around your home, why not bring them to us to dry and create a piece of jewelry you can enjoy the entire year!
