I use natural gemstones to make my rosaries. They are magnificent. Just like us, no two gemstones are alike. They have a unique earthy quality about them that cannot be duplicated.
The Ave beads are 8mm Brown Snowflake Jasper Gemstones. They are beautiful, rich brown gemstones with caramel and grey swirls. Jasper beads are unique and similar to snowflakes; no two are alike.
The Pater beads are 10mm Tigerskin Jasper Gemstones. They are brown and golden with an earthy appearance. Tigerskin Jasper combines the look of natural wood grain, and yet it has the long-wearing beauty of stone.
This rosary has a 2" antiqued Penal Crucifix that is imported from Italy. The Ecce Homo Center is also from Italy and has a picture of Madonna on the reverse side.
This rosary is 23" long. It has an opening of 32" and is large enough in case it is bought to be worn.
I love the look of antique and heirloom rosaries. Rosaries that are special and meaningful. But I want that special rosary to be durable and made to last. Therefore, I use strong metal components so you can use your rosary every day.
I now use Stainless Steel chain and wire to make all of my rosaries. It is an extremely strong and durable metal. Unlike most metals it does not oxidize and therefore will not tarnish over time. It is hypoallergenic and is much more affordable than sterling silver or gold. Stainless steel is also quite beautiful. It gives each piece an antique and vintage look.
All of my rosaries come with a decorative pouch, adorned with a lead-safe antiqued pewter cross. This is ideal for storage, travel, and also makes a beautiful presentation when given as a gift.
There is something quite special about a handmade rosary. I take a lot of time to make each rosary. Every link is carefully turned by hand.
Pray for Peace.
