Kateri Tekakwitha, Lily of the Mohawks
Rhyolite, Wood and Bronze
Handmade Rosary

This rosary is inspired by St. Kateri Tekakwitha, who is familiarly known as the Flower of the Algonquins and Lily of the Mohawks.

The elegantly simple crucifix is adorned with stylized lilies.  On the large rosary center is an image of St. Kateri, framed within the petals of a flower.  Both of these pieces are hand-cast in solid bronze.

The colors and materials of the rosary are meant to suggest St. Kateri's homeplace: the woods of upstate New York.

The mottled green Ave beads are rhyolite;  each one is unique in size and shape.  A collection of five wooden beads forms each Pater.

Among these are beads of matte glass, and solid brass.  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.

Center:  1.2" tall, 1" wide
Paters:  about 15mm wide
Aves:  about 8mm wide
Length:  about 23.5" from top of loop to bottom of cross
