what a beautiful idea! I wonder if you could add some dye to it without affecting the composition of the "clay"? Or maybe add some sort of natural acidic to the mix to prevent browning (like you'd put lemon juice on fruit, sort of...)?

Did you harvest your own roses, or use store-bought?

I hadn't thought of adding dye or acidic stuff to it to change the colour... I don't see any reason why it could not be done!  If you give it a try, please let me know how you go with it!

I do have a rose garden, however we are in severe drought and they did not flower very well this season, so I, um, stole rose petals from my local botanical gardens...

*puts on the 2009 "to do craft" list

My mom has a rosary made with rose beads that my grandma bought in Medjugorje, oh at least 20 years ago and hers still smells wonderful (and it has scented her entire jewelry box).
That is fabulous, I am going to have to try it.
