Step by Step
Maple and MaLi Wood
Handmade Rosary

Step by Step Rosary handmade of maple, carved wood and bronze, by Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art, preview

"You have only one model, Jesus.
Follow, follow, follow him step by step,
imitating him, sharing his life in every way."

-- Blessed Charles de Foucauld

Simple, all-in-one-loop rosary... This one is smaller than most of our other rosaries.  We don't see a lot of all-in-one-loop rosaries nowadays, but they were the norm until a just few centuries ago.

The crucifix is one of our favorites.  It's solid bronze, hand-cast from a vintage Russian original.

The Ave beads are plain, unfinished maple wood -- they'll darken a bit with use.  It was quite a challenge to find beads of this quality, and in this nice 7mm size -- it took years of searching -- well worth the effort. 

The Paters are hand-carved MaLi wood, set between small beads of solid brass.

Separating the prayer beads are smaller beads of dark brown matte glass.  The connecting rings are solid bronze. The rosary is strung on premium quality Soft Flex jewelers' cable, composed of 49 strands of steel encased in nylon, with a test strength of 26 pounds.  Each end is double-crimped for security.

Aves: 7mm
Crucifix: 1.5"
