We're proud to announce that Fleurings designer, Samantha Lockwood, was featured on the front page of The Garden Island newspaper based in Lihue, Hawaii, covering the islands of Kauai and Niihau. This great article explores Samantha's inspiration behind creating Fleurings.
The idea for this unique vase jewelry that holds flowers came about when Samantha was a waitress in her early 20s. Her grandmother, Betty, gave her smart advice to "Wear a flower behind your ear for good luck and you will make better tips."
Sure enough her grandmother's advice came true as Samantha nearly doubled her tips! As a result, Lockwood was inspired to create vase earrings to effectively hold water and fresh flowers securely, so the flowers would stay fresh for several hours. Hence the name "Fleur" + "earrings" = Fleurings.
So much has happened since that first day of creative inspiration. Thousands of people worldwide have enjoyed wearing flowers with Fleurings. The line expanded to include necklaces and earrings, and recently, gemstones were added to the jewelry design.
We love bringing together two forces of nature: fresh flowers and beautiful women. We hope that by wearing flowers, women will experience the blessings of nature's positive energy and life force everywhere they go!

Unique and elegant Fleurings came to be when Samantha Lockwood had the idea to design jewelry with a tiny reservoir that can hold water for small flowers. She was inspired by her grandmother Betty who suggested that wearing flowers in your hair brings good luck and nature's positive energy everywhere you go.
"I love wearing flowers," Samantha explains. "Flowers offer happiness, beauty, color, fragrance and a sense of calm."
But that isn't the only family influence inspiring Lockwood's creativity. Her dad Gary Lockwood is a movie actor who appeared in 2001: A Space Odyssey, the pilot for Star Trek and two movies with Elvis Presley, while her mom Denise DuBarry Hay is an actress, entrepreneur and yogini. Following in her parent's footsteps, Samantha Lockwood applies her talents in multiple areas.
As a kid, Samantha says she caught the acting bug: "I grew up watching movies. I think that's the main reason why I wanted to be an actor is because I love films."
