I made this cross for my brother in law from the rose petals from his mother's funeral.
I embedded the petals in pearl clay. The Celtic cutter is about 4 inches long so I laid sheets that I textured on the top and bottom before I cut through it to make it thicker. I baked the cross and then made the base the same way. I embedded the cross in the base with a generous helping of Genesis to make sure it stuck and then baked it. It's antiqued with gold iridescent paint.
I made a stamp on the back that says 1913 to 2014. It's very tiny and I had a little trouble with the paint in order for the numbers to be seen. You can see the rose petals in the clay in this picture.
I put the petals in a glass jar and they sure do have strong odor.
The lavender beads in these bracelets are made with translucent clay and rose petals. That's the color that the clay turned from the rose petals.
