When I was scrolling through pictures under Discovery Bay Hong Kong hashtag on Instagram, I found Flower by Chisa.  Chisa is a Japanese preserved flower artist who lives in Hong Kong.

Chisa is elegant just like her work! She is also very supportive and kind. The other day, she gave me this beautiful preserved flower pod for my upcoming birthday which I will share some images later! Thank you, Chisa!!! I LOVE your birthday gift!

What is Preserved Flower?

According to PFAA (Preserved Flower Association of America), “the Preserved Flower is a fabricated flower that allows the flower’s freshness to be kept for a long time without losing its beauty. It is a flower’s “dream come true” – the flower keeps its freshness by inserting into the flower a special organic liquid when it is at its best so that the flower itself will assimilate the preservative solution and pigment and natural beauty. And furthermore, it will last for several years!”
