I totally love the center on this rosary! It's huge -- about an inch tall. I had it cast in Argentium Sterling. I wire wrapped this rosary to make it unbreakable. The crystals are antique with the quality hardly seen anymore. To me, it's a true treasure. Fit for the Queen of Heaven herself (if anything could ever be good enough for her...)
Here you can see the detail.
Small Koa beads (5mm) more suitable for pocket or purse. It's a little miniature of the Pope's rosary.
I thought it would be good for a First Holy Communion or even a baptism. It's a rosary which a child will use even as an adult.
Here's the close up of my latest rosary.
Jerusalem beads bought in the Old City of Jerusalem. Sold to me by a Catholic Christian whose family have been Christians since the time of Christ. See this Rosary
Genuine bronze, not just a bronze "finish". It has an old world look to it. Notice that it's wire wrapped to make it unbreakable. I prayed a rosary for you (whoever you are who winds up owning this one) and I just loved that big huge Sacred Heart.
Pretty, I think. What's not to like? White freshwater pearls (5.5mm) and handmade Lampwork beads. This ultra feminine rosary has "heirloom" written all over it. The first thing I wanted to do after finishing this rosary was to pray on it. If it's for you, then I prayed for you. $425
Deep, Bright Blue! The Hail Mary Beads are Blue Agate (6mm) and the Our Father beads are handmade encased Blue Flower Lampwork beads. The color is wondeful.
Melanie Carey made these beautiful encased flower lampwork beads. She makes pretty much all my fancy glass beads. We've never met, but I consider her to be a prayer partner and a friend.
I love the new rosary center that I found, too It's a miraculous medal with plenty of detail. The result is an ulta feminine rosary.
NOTE: 11/29/16 I only have one Pope's rosary left!! Please pray for Hawaiian Accessories to fix their production problem!
I found enough Koa beads for 5 or 6 rosaries. The beads that I found are a nice dark koa with nicely drilled holes. But, sorry to say, they were expensive, so I had to raise my price a little. Sorry!!
This is a soft but vibrant shade of natural Jadite green. It's made with 8mm beads and the Our Father beads are sterling silver as are all metal parts of the rosary. The wire is Argentium to insure that it stays non tarnished through the years. It cleans up with just a mild soap and water. I made this rosary with an Asian flare. You can see it here in the Rosary Catalog.
I, Pam Aqui, am a wife (of one) and mother (of two) and grandmother (of six). I began to make rosaries over 20 years ago after my husband and I decided to pray the rosary everyday. I am a convert and didn't pray my first rosary until I was 39 years old.
