Made from the petals of REAL Roses.
I started this business after the passing of my father. He had roses throughout his backyard and I decided to take those petals in hopes of making some sort of keepsake from them. After working with the roses, I discovered a recipe to mix with the petals that would help me form a paste. From this paste, I was able to create beads that would last a lifetime. I later found that I could use fresh or dried roses and began making keepsake items from funeral arrangements, or from wedding or graduation bouquets.
The beads turn very dark in color, almost black, but are very beautiful with silver and gold. The beads can be used to make bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rosaries or any other type keepsake we can come up with. I work with my customers to try and personalize pieces. For example, adding a charm or initials, or even adding some beads from their own jewelry or a loved one's pieces. I try to find something for everyones' style and budget.
Most people are grieving when they bring me their roses, and this is a way to help that.
