Tewksbury’s Rosaries from Flowers Turns Funeral Flowers into Permanent Keepsakes

Crafting rosaries and other keepsakes from flowers is a delicate process that requires skill, patience, and training. The Barbieri family of Tewksbury, MA has been honing this craft for decades, since it was first taught to the mother of current owners, by a local order of nuns known as the Sisters of Charity. The daughters of the founding member of Rosaries from Flowers have spent decades perfecting this time-honored process with deep-seated religious roots. Often working with funeral flowers, Rosaries from Flowers consults with each customer to determine the desired look and finish of each piece. Funeral flowers are designed to ease–however little–the grief caused by an irreplaceable loss. Unfortunately, these delicate specimens can’t last forever, which is why Rosaries from Flowers turns them into lasting keepsakes made from funeral flowers.

Keepsakes from Funeral Flowers Provide Solace Beyond the Most Difficult Times

Though funeral flowers naturally pass, the grief that results from the loss of a loved one lasts forever. The original purpose of funeral flowers was to provide comfort to survivors in times of distress. Seeds of funeral flowers have been discovered in Iraq dating to ca. 60,000 B.C. The Egyptians depicted the lotus flower on their sarcophagi, as it symbolized creation and rebirth. Nevertheless, like our loved ones, these flowers too quickly pass away. Tewksbury, MA’s family-owned and operated Rosaries from Flowers was established to produce permanent keepsakes from these delicate funeral flowers, to provide a lasting source of comfort to the bereaved. Customers visit Rosaries from Flowers in all times of great need. The artistants at Rosaries from Flowers treat their work as not only a craft, but a service to their fellow humans. The keepsakes at Rosaries from Flowers are intended to restore faith and hope to customers in Tewksbury and online from around the country.

Keepsakes from Flowers Preserves Funeral Flowers in Bespoke Styles

Margaret Pickston said it best when she wrote, “”There is a language, ‘little known’, Lovers claim it as their own. Its symbols smile upon the land, Wrought by Natures wonderous hand; And in their silent beauty speak, Of life and joy, to those who seek For Love Divine and sunny hours In the language of the flowers”. This 20th-century “Language of Flowers” poem speaks to the nineteenth century’s penchant for using flowers to communicate. In the present day, flowers bear tremendous symbolic value, which makes them a time-honored tradition at funerals. Because these flowers fade with time, Rosaries from Flowers preserves and transforms funeral flowers into keepsakes that will last a lifetime and beyond. Originally established to produce handmade rosaries from dried flowers, this small, family-owned Tewksbury business has expanded to deliver keepsakes in a variety of styles and colors. Our craftsmen receive orders from both in-store customers as well as online shipments of flowers from those unable to visit our physical location. We also work with each customer to ensure that all jewelry, rosaries, chaplets, and other keepsakes from funeral flowers meet their needs and expectations. Moreover, because we know the value that these flowers have for each customer, we retain any unused or unclaimed flowers for a period of five (5) years.

The Barbieri family has been making rosaries and memorial keepsakes from flowers for over 40 years.
