Frequently Asked Questions
My rose doesn't look exactly like the one you have pictured, why is that?
Because of differences in each roll of leather that I order, there can be slight color variations. Some leather is darker than others, some has more imperfections in it. Each rose is hand cut and hand painted. Because each one is individually done, there is always a difference of some sort in each rose. I believe this is a good thing because then each rose is unique, imperfections and all. :)
Can I pick up my flowers or have them delivered?
Yes. If you wish to do this, just simply contact us and let us know what you wish to order and we will send you an invoice. At this time, we don't have the website set up to NOT calculate shipping. Once you contact us, we can make arrangements for delivery or pick up.
Can I make a special request for a certain color?
Yes. Special requests are accepted with the understanding that we may not be able to come up with the exact color you are looking for. We will be happy to make one rose in the color you want. Once that rose is completed, we will send you a photo of that rose. You are not in any way obligated to purchase that rose. We appreciate feedback and color ideas from our customers!
Do you have roses already made ahead of time?
We try to have roses of each color made ahead of time. Having said that, there are times, such as Christmas, Valentine's, Mother's Day, etc., that roses will sell quickly, therefore it might take longer to receive your roses because they have to be made. Please take this into consideration when ordering so that you allow enough time to receive your roses.
What size are your roses and how tall are they?
Unless otherwise stated, our roses measure approximately 2" across and the stems are approximately 9" tall.
What are the stems made from?
The stems are made from wire wrapped in a paper wrapping. At times they will be wrapped in green floral tape for special orders.
How long does it take to make the roses?
Each roses is hand cut, hand painted and shaped, dried and sprayed with a protective gloss. At this time, this is a one person operation so depending on how many you order and if they are special colors that I have to order paint for, each rose takes at least a day. If you order multiple colors, it will take longer. Each order is different. If you have time constraints, please let me know and I'll see what I can do about rushing your order. Having said that, PLEASE order early. Thanks.
Do you make any flowers other than roses?
I want to add more flowers to my collection but at this time I only have the time and resources to make the roses.
How come there are vases on your site sometimes and then they are gone?
Vases take a while to make so they are only placed on my site when they are made and ready to ship. I do accept requests for vases but again, keep the time frame in mind.
