Here's a Rosary bracelet wire wrapped with some of the leftover Garnet. Even the clasp is pretty!
Assorted glass beads, rustic in color, looking like beads from ancient days became the Aves (Hail Marys) in this new Rosary. The Paters (Our Fathers) are antiqued Copper beads. Separating the Aves are fine Pipestone, a stone common in the upper midwest, and held as Sacred for Many Native American tribes. Pipes used in Religious ceremonies were frequently made of this soft brown rock The original idea for this Rosary was to make a Southwestern Rosary using the antiqued Paters for their Turquoise coloration, but when I saw them against the bag of multi shaped and sized beads, the Rosary just designed itself, and everything fell into place. The Cross is drop dead beautiful--heavy, polished to perfectioh. A small, bronze Crucifix can be added like a medal, from the center for those of you who wish to obtain the numerous indulgences available to those with a Rosary with Crucifix. There is no charge to add it in. Simply leave me a note when you order. The cable is strong, 49-strand Stainless steel wire with a 40# test weight. to prevent breakage under normal conditions. The Rosary is 19" long. It will be a bit stiff when it arrives. Over a short time, and with use, it becomes softer as the cable relaxes slightly. As always, this Rosary will come boxed in silver and in a beaded Organza bag.
It only looks delicate! This small (13.5in.) has been strung on heavy, 29-strand 40# test Stainless Steel cable wire. It is carefully double crimped at all attachment points, and wire guardians protect the wire against fraying. The center is Our Lady of Guadalupe backed with the Divine Infant of Prague. Like the simple scrolled Crucifix, the center is Pewter and will not discolor or wear off.Swarovski Crystal Hail Marys are separated with small seed pearls and the larger pearls of the Our Father are often called 'potato pearls,' but I much prefer the term 'baroque pearls.' Ideal for children or small hands, it is silky smooth and a pleasure to pray. As always, it comes ready for presentation--boxed in silver and in a gorgeous, beaded gift bag.

This Rosary is quite possibly the finest I have ever made. It was a custom order in collaboration with the buyer, who provided the glorious marcasite Cross, center and medals. I added the beads--AAA gray Moonstone and marcasite bead caps over onyx rondelle Fathers. It is a one-of-a-kind Rosary that will embrace the renewal of vows for this dear pt and friend. Just thought you'd enjoy seeing it. Blessings+ jc
