A very lovely and unusual piece, I made this rosary with beads of "wood jasper" - a stone found in the earth that resembles wood. It's not petrified wood. It's a unique type of jasper stone. Browns, greens and creams mottle the coloring. I used a light colored wood center that features a tiny Miraculous Medal within it, and I complimented it with a log style crucifix. The pater beads have silver plated bead caps. All beads are 6mm in diameter. And I used wire wrapped loops to attach the center and crucifix for strength and durability - no jump rings to come open.
Arrives gift boxed with a velour storage bag and a holy card of the Morning Offering.
