Always remember to treat your beads with love and care. Please note that our beads are hand-made, using flower petals. There is no resin added to our rose petal beads, so exposure to harsh chemicals and water WILL damage the beads. You may re-scent your rose beads with pure rose oil. Dab a little on each bead and AVOID water. Expect variations in size and color. Each bead is hand crafted, so each will be different. Speckles in some beads are natural, as these are pieces of the crushed rose petals. Enjoy the handcrafted beauty of your rosary jewelry.
