St. Peter's Example
Carved Bone, Jasper and Bronze
Handmade Rosary

St Peter's Example Rosary handmade of carved bone and jasper, by Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art, pv

For our beloved Saint Peter the Apostle, whose faults and failings are renown, but who went ahead and kept trying.

The Pater beads of this rosary are carved bone.  Their crosshatch pattern suggests the fishing nets which were the tools of Peter's trade. Alongside the Paters are variously colored disks of fancy jasper.

The stone Aves are silverleaf jasper. Among these are beads of matte glass and brass.

The openwork crucifix and Gate of Heaven rosary center are both solid bronze, handcast from antique originals.

All 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.

Crucifix: 2.25"
Center: .75"
Paters: 1.75"
Aves: 8mm
Length: 27.5"
