About Rose Beads
Following a centuries old tradition, our rose beads are made by grinding the petals of our own
fragrant antique roses, gallicas, albas, cabbage, moss roses and others, in a hand grinder
each day for weeks until they form a fragrant clay. The clay then sits overnight in a cast iron frying pan.
A reaction between the oil in the roses and the iron pan turns the clay black & fixes the fragrance.
Beads are rolled by hand. It takes almost a cup of fresh rose petals to make one bead.
As you wear them, the warmth of your body will release their fragrance.
Beads come in a glass jar containing a cotton pad infused with rose essential oil.
Store your beads in glass between wearings to ensure a lifetime of fragrance.
We offer both individual rose beads and finished necklaces of fire polished Czech glass & rose beads.
Choker to matinée lengths have 6 to 8 rose beads. Longer strands have 10.
We can also make beads from your fresh or dried roses from weddings, christenings,
or in the Victorian tradition, a loved ones funeral flowers. E mail us for particulars & price.
