What does Heirloom Quality mean?
My heirloom quality designs and construction mean that one day you may find one of my designs on display in a museum as an ancient artifact. That might be a bit optimistic, but I do design my rosaries to last for generations! I fully intend for your rosary to endure the normal wear and tear of life and maybe even a catastrophic event! I want the Rosary that you buy to be the same rosary passed down to your grandchild!
What is Wire-Wrapping?
Wire-wrapping is a process that takes a straight piece of wire and manipulates it into a loop with a wire wrapped around it’s bottom. It produces the strongest and most durable enclosure for the bead that is extremely difficult to break or pull off.
Why is it important for Rosaries?
I will not tolerate broken rosaries - period! With a wire-wrapped rosary you almost eliminate the chances of the rosary breaking. It will withstand a child yanking on it or being carried in your pocket or purse. Although, a wire-wrapped rosary can break, I have only had three that have needed to be fixed in the 13 years that I have been making rosaries.
What is Patina?
Patina is tarnish that forms on the surface of bronze, copper, brass and silver metals, caused by oxidation and can be used decoratively in fine jewelry and metalworking.
How does Patina effect my Rosaries?
Each rosary is handcrafted with new wire. The color of the new wire is shiny and bright and often doesn’t match the bronze Crucifix and Center. Over time the wire will patina in a darker, richer color and match the Crucifix and Center. One exception to this is the stainless steel wire used for the Sterling or Pewter Rosaries. This will always stay bright and shiny and perfectly match your medals.
