About

the Rose and the Lotus...what's sacred, is sacred

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When a friend mentioned to me that one of his hobbies was to make beads out of rose petals and string them into rosaries, I was intrigued. More than intrigued...I was captivated. What a beautiful idea. Taking a symbol as universally beloved as the rose, and creating sacred pieces of jewelry from it's petals.

And the more research I did into rose petal beads, the more I feel in love.

Prayer beads have been made out of the petals of roses for over a thousand years, spanning cultural and religious boundaries. Nuns and monks, gurus and devotees have ground up fresh petals and cooked them in a cast iron skillet over an open flame, rolled them into beads and air dried them until they could be strung into beautiful works of sacred, natural art.

The tradition, the history, the beauty...I knew at once this was something I wanted to be a part of. The creation of these timeless pieces, that for a lifetime, will harness the heat from our bodies and release their scent when worn or handled, ensuring that our prayers, our hopes and our intentions are carried to heaven on the fragrant breath of roses.
