Below, find answers to many of the most commonly asked questions. Feel free to contact us at anytime if you have further questions or need information about our products or services.

How many roses does it take to make a necklace, bracelet, or rosary?
The number of roses needed to make any of our jewelry designs depends on the style you choose. There are 59 beads on a rosary (53 rose petal beads), for the first Rosary at least a dozen roses is recommended. Depending on the size of the rose, each additional rosary will require six to eight roses. Some of our other jewelry items only call for a few rose petal beads, so only a couple of roses are required.

Do the roses have to be fresh or can they be already dried?
Fresh roses work the best! The rose can be wilted by as long as there is moisture left in the petals the process will work. It is the fresh petals that have the oil necessary to hold the beads together. Dried roses can be used after they go through a re-hydration process. No other ingredients are added, and the results are as beautiful and meaningful as when the roses were fresh.

How do I get the roses to you?
The roses, minus the stems, can be placed in a paper bag and mailed to us. Plastic tends to make the rose petals become moldy, so please use only paper. We have several drop off locations if you would rather hand deliver your roses.

Do only roses work?
Yes. Only roses have the characteristics that will work with this process.

How long will I have to wait to receive my final product?
The process, from start to finish, normally takes two to three weeks. If the roses are dried, the process can take an additional week.

Are the beads always black? What if I have yellow or white roses?
No matter the color of the rose, the rose petal beads always turn out black.

Is there anywhere I can go to see samples?
Yes. There are several locations that have sample boards. Please contact us for information on the location nearest to you.

How do I care for a necklace, bracelet, or rosary made of rose petal beads?
Rose petal beads are not water resistant. No adhesive or lacquer is used in the process. To restore the original luster, roll between hands that have a small amount of petroleum jelly covering them.
