Going Overboard
Old Brass and Glass
Handmade Rosary

"Overboard on the instant went Simon Peter...
Overboard into the water this impulsive creature flung himself -- "
-- Charles Seymour Robinson

Aves of matte Czech glass in warm amber tones... Coptic crucifix and rosary center, both of solid bronze...
