I’d imagine that you’d see decay and loss of petals in clay. I’d wager it would be safer to use an epoxy or a resin.

That’s great! I wonder if petals from 2 years ago are dried enough. 😉 It would be a great keepsake and something cool to pass down if a daughter was sentimental like that.

That’s a really cool idea.  I love it.  I may have to look into it.

Most pink and white flowers will dry brown/yellowed. You would have to really powder the petals to get a consistent color. Also, you’d need to glaze the beads to get them to shine like those pictures. 

I have found that pressed flower petals retain more color than just air-dried flowers. It prevents the flowers from getting brown veins and keeps the dust off while the petals dry.

I think that is a really fab idea! Would be lovely to pass down to your future daughter etc etc.
