These beads are made from the petals of the rose. It is a great way to save the beauties of the spring and summer. When you wear any jewelry made with these beads the heat of your skin releases the fragrance of the roses they are made from. No need for extra perfume. It is said that these are what the original rosaries were made of.

This is a craft easy enough for children to do and can be quite fun as long as the kids have some adult supervision. This could be done for Girl Scouts or church groups for vacation bible school. Light colored roses will make a brown bead and the darker roses will make beads that are almost black. The materials for this craft are pretty straightforward, but in case you have trouble finding rose essential oil it can be found online just Goggle essential oil. You want perfume oil, as it will have the strongest scent.




  1. In blender pulverize the rose petals with water scented with the essential oils until they become a paste.
  2. Remove the paste from the blender.
  3. Now roll the paste into small balls. Make your balls a little larger than what you want for a finished size and the beads will shrink as they dry.
  4. Push the t pin through the center of your bead. Now stick these into a piece of Styrofoam to dry. It can take up to 2 weeks for these to dry. As they are drying turn them so that you have a well-formed hole in each.
  5. String in to necklaces and bracelets and anklets.
  6. You can use other beads to complement your dried rose beads. Pearls are really nice with the rose beads that are black. Big bags of assorted colored beads can be found at Walmart or any of the craft stores. These beads are light sensitive so you will want to store them in a nice box with some tissue scented with more of the rose essential oil.
