Cool. I've seen rose petal beads before but they were completely different. These are more rustic, which is a nice original alternative.

My 87 yr old mother has a rosary made from rose beads.  She's had it since she was a little girl.  The beads have held up, but the scent is gone.

I have also read in the book that I have here that you can add rose oil to the mix if your roses are not the strongly scented kind. AND you can rub rose oil on them if the scent starts to fade.

I tried this with light colored roses-whitish pink.I dont recommend using light colored roses.My mixture is a yellow brown,it looks like it belongs in a public bathroom. Im not sure what color the beads will turn out.Any way I can salvage this project? Or should I just start all over again with darker roses?

I have a great aunt who does this. When my dad died, she took the flowers from the funeral and made jewelry for me, my mom, and siblings to wear. They do smell wonderful, and I thought it was a great sentimental piece.

Foisty,  I have only done this once, so I don't consider myself an expert by any means, but if I were you, I'd keep going as I noticed the mix changed colour quite a bit during the process.  It went kind of pinky brown while it was still simmering and even when it was drying it changed quite a bit and became the dark pinky-red-brown that is in the final picture.  Just experiment with it and post up how you went  - I'd love to see some other results!

Oh, neat! I may try this some day. And actually, my mom has a rose bead rosary... I think it was her mom's. Still smells like roses!
