Rose Petal Beads

Cook the petals in water until they're soft and translucent--blend--then cook again in a skillet until it looks like clay--spread out on foil and dry until you can form--make beads and leave them on a nail because they shrink, but keep turning them so they don't get stuck on the nails.  I rubbed them with a little rose oil when they were completely dry.

They dry very hard and they do shrink a lot!  They remind me a little too much of mouse or bat turds!
