    Debra! Gorgeous colors! That green moonstone is unexpected and perfect!

    Thank you! Here’s an actual picture of the rose. It’s a tea that dates from 1839.

    Very pretty! Do you grow them? I’m quite jealous of anyone with a green thumb–even silk flowers tremble when I get near ;)

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    That’s the beauty of old roses. They’re so easy. You can find them surviving anywhere…old homesteads, old cemeteries… They’re really tough. I’ve got about 30 different ones in my garden.

    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Your garden must be beautiful! Maybe I’ll have to get myself into flowers. After all, not too long ago I said that I’d never try beading because it looked too hard!

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    I stick to easy stuff…native plants that thrive in the Texas heat.

    Well it sounds like you’ve got a good thing going!

    Debra, I’m not sure which is prettier – honestly. what a thought about old homesteads. I was visiting friends of friends at an old sea shore community last weekend – they’re rehabbing a late 18th century home – top to bottom. they have not yet started with the grounds – probably a good season or two off yet – I should ask them to check out for old roses.
    Your roses must be a constant source of inspiration with jewerly.
    Do you have any chocolate roses? sorry for the common name – while I know a bunch of trees – roses escape me.

  9. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    I don’t have any chocolate roses, but that sounds intriguing. I have mostly roses that thrive in the heat of the South. They can survive without a lot of water and are rarely affected by disease. There’s a wonderful nursery in Independence, TX (near Brenham, if you know the area) that specializes in “old roses”. Some have not even been identified and go by the name of where they were found; hence, their name of found roses. I’ve got a wonderful, extremely fragrant cream colored rose that has not yet been identified. Unfortunately, it’s not doing really well. It’s old. My grandma planted it almost 60 years ago!

    Smoky Rose says:

    that’s fantastic – how wonderful to have a piece of her with you thru that plant. my grandpa was a botanist/grower and hybridized some rhododendrons – his specialty was orange ones. he passed when my dad was a child – and my dad is passed now too, so I know very few details, but I can’t help but smile when I see orange ones!
    the chocolate rose I found online a few weeks back, hunting for inspiration was actually terra cotta in color – unusual, to me at least.

    Debra, I love your rose, and your pick! I know what you mean about needing the hardy old time plants. Yesterday, I planted some (gaillardia) blanket flower, improved variety not supposed to sprawl as much.
    When we moved 2 years ago, I left behind roses I hope someone will love; I still miss some of them, like old friends.

    Has anyone used the biwa triangle pearls yet? I was just wondering what you do with them.

  17. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Thanks Lynn Eileen! I was wondering the same thing! Due respect, LB, they’re drilled kinda odd, aren’t they? ….

  18. CAS
    CAS says:

    I don’t have any of the Biwa Triangle Pearls so I don’t know their size, but you could use them like you’d use a double drilled donut shape, maybe string a small bead or beads in the center (framed kind of). They also might be cool using them like arrow heads.

  19. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Thanks, CAS, I hadn’t thought of putting something in the center. I don’t have any yet due to the $$$, but just thought I’d ask!

    Mary, I’m glad I’m not alone in my curiosity!!! They are drilled in a strange way, aren’t they? Wonder if they grow in a triangle shape? Inquiring minds want to know…
