UPDATE 2/5/2024

It is with great sadness that we share the news that our studio has been completely destroyed by a fire. As a result, operations are on hold. We regret to inform you that Peter Honeyman, the owner of Real Flower Jewelry, is currently recovering in a burn unit in Honolulu. This unforeseen event has dealt a significant blow to our operations. We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time and will provide updates on our progress as we navigate through this situation. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for the years of support you have given Real Flower Jewelry. Your thoughts and well-wishes for Peter’s recovery mean a lot to us. Thank you for your continued understanding.

UPDATE 3/24/2024

In response to the numerous inquiries and expressions of goodwill, we are relieved to announce that Peter has been discharged from the Straub ICU and burn unit. He is now with his daughter and her family near San Diego, where he is steadily progressing on his road to recovery. At this time, any plans for a return to Hilo are premature as Peter’s priority is to restore his bodily health. We will provide more updates in due course. Thank you for your continued support.

UPDATE 4/20/2024

It is gratifying to receive so many continuing expressions of good will and urging for Peter’s recovery. He asks for your understanding that sometimes it is not practical for him to answer each one promptly and individually. His improvement continues, albeit at a pace that frustrates him for not being fast enough. Current professional medical advice is for him not to expect to be actively working for maybe a few more months. His burns are less painful and show promise of not leaving scars which is good for his vanity . His dexterity is improving which hopefully will lessen his excuses at not answering messages more promptly. Your continuing support is a significant motivator in Peter’s recovery.

Why do we call this collection, Phoenix Jewelry?

In mid-summer 2018 the Kilauea volcanic eruption destroyed all our nursery sources for our large blooming specialized orchids requiring acreage to grow. To regrow them to provide replacement flowers would take over three years. We could not wait, nor was there the ground space available as the nurseries are now under 60 feet of rock-hard lava. Thus, we sought to develop very different small potted orchids. These are readily portable, not rooted in the ground as before. This allows them to be removed quickly should danger loom again. They also take much less space to grow. Thus, these beautiful miniatures have arisen as a new product for us, like the Phoenix, rising from the fire and ashes of the volcano.
