When I saw this http://knitionary.blogspot.ca/2015/05/capturing-summer.html, I knew what to do with a lot of time in my grandmothers garden. I spent two weeks with my parents there and my father observed my doings over a span of a few days rather amusedly. I think he was impressed how long it could take to get some raisin-like beads ;-)















I actually wanted gold beads, but they only had weird ones at the local shop. I thought maybe to have the gold cups face each other to make a bead, but in the end decided to use them as intended- sometimes the coincidence produces the best results!

I never heard of making beads from roses!

You did a fine job!  I wonder if the beads do get smoother over time as they are worn?

Lovely! The beads came out really beautiful… Do they actually smell like roses?

Beautiful work! I would've never imagined how to make beads from rose petals!

Thank you for the compliments! They actually smell like roses, but only faintly. The roses I used dind't smell strongly either, so I guess the more the original rose smells, the more the beads will smell! I would love to try this with lavender, I think it might work! If you try, elderflower, let me know!!!

Oh, and yes, they should become smoother over time- there is a picture  at the bottom of the blog post I linked and it shows a necklace of very old beads!
