Bloodstone, Wood and Bronze
Handmade Rosary

Acorn rosary, handmade of bloodstone and bronze, Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art, pv

"Where I go, you cannot follow Me now;  but you will follow later." 
   -- John 13:36

The wooden Pater beads of this rosary suggest acorns;  the pattern of the solid brass acorn caps beautifully complements the pattern of the crucifix... 

The beautifully shaped crucifix is hand-cast from an antique in solid bronze.  

The rosary center is adorned with images of wheat, grape leaves, and the Eucharist;  it's also solid bronze, cast by hand from an antique original.

The Ave beads are bloodstone, in naturally varied deep blue-greens and occasional touches of muted reds. 

Among these are beads of matte Japanese glass and brass. 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. All the connecting rings are solid bronze.

Crucifix: 2"
Center: .4"
Pater beads: about .5"
Length: about 24.5"
