In time, the word spread that my mother was able to do this. One thing lead to another and my mother began making flower petal jewelry for friends, family, and acquaintances. As business grew, she taught me everything she knew about the craft to help keep up with demand.
Because of the joy we saw these pieces of flower petal jewelry bring, we wanted to expand to make them available to more people. We decided to start a line of jewelry, "Lewis & Cruse". Since this began as a memorial rosary for my grandmother, we couldn't think of anyone that we would like to honor more than my grandmothers. Nancy Lewis (nee), my maternal grandmother and Beatrice Cruse (nee), my paternal grandmother. Both were amazing women and I love having this line named after them.
