It's great how my customers inspire me. Someone asked for a turquoise rosary so I ordered some of these beads and some of those beads. Then I got inspired. I put a tiny little touch of red for contrast and a little extra pop. I think this rosary is great for either a man or a woman. You can find this rosary here: /store/p63/Turquoise_Rosary_in_Sterling_Silver.html
This Rosary was designed by a customer. It turned out beautifully. The Hail Mary beads are Peridot. The Our Father beads are Citrine. The "center" is Amethyst. The Crucifix has been cast from a handmade crucifix from Brazil. It's made with all Argentium sterling.
Well, I was trying to organize my beads, when I ran across some beautiful sterling silver end caps. At the same time, I found some antique handcarved Cinnabar beads. Then I found some Picasso Jasper in a long forgotten pile.
It all came together so nicely, I thought. The Picasso Jasper is really a gorgeous stone. Just made me appreciate our Lord who paid such attention to beauty when He made our world.
I found other nice combinations, too, that I will be working on. I'm really in a rosary making mood especially since preparing two talks on the Rosary.
Of course, it's in Sterling Silver with the wire and the hand cast Queen of Heaven rosary center in Argentium silver.
This rosary is $400.
I was asked to make a wire wrapped version of the Pope's Rosary. So I did. I'm not expert at it yet, but I can assure you it will not easily be pulled apart even while praying while driving a car or sleeping with it. It takes about 4 times the sterling wire and a very long time to make it, so I had to charge extra for it.
It's $400 for the wire wrapped version.
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.
