This beautiful pocket rosary is made with 6mm cat eye beads. It is wire wrapped to maximize the strength of the piece and make it nearly unbreakable. I used bronze wire and bronze bead caps along with a bronze petite crucifix and bronze Madonna del Latte Medal. The piece is highlighted with rose colored Swarovski crystals.
In my profile I mention the wonderful gal who casts the medals for me...she has cast this little medal from her own personal collection. She wrote about this tiny medal..."I cannot tell you how long I have searched for this medal, or one like it. I have always loved the images of Our Lady nursing the baby Jesus... I think it somehow makes her seem more "human" to me, to see her feeding her child so tenderly. The nursing Madonna image also goes by the title Madonna Litta and Madonna Lactans (And sometimes Our Lady of La Leche). This lovely little medal features Our Lady of Perpetual Help on the reverse." One of a kind #63.
The crucifix in this piece is slightly larger then the "itty bitty" crucifix in my Itty Bitty Pocket Rosaries
