OUR LADY OF FATIMA IN BLUE
WIRE-WRAPPED ROSARY





Handmade Sterling Silver wire wrapped Rosary. Ave beads are hard-to-find Montana blue Grade A 8mm cateyes (also known as fiber optic beads). Cats eye beads, sometimes referred to as fiber-optic beads change hue as they capture and reflect light. They have a band of light running through the center that resembles a cat's eye. The Ave blue cateyes are accented by hematite seed beads and flower spacers. The Paters are 13mm rectangular agate stones with striations of white and shades of light blue. The centerpiece is handmade by the artist and is a one of a kind piece consisting of an image of Our Lady of Fatima, centered in a silver plate antique cabochon pendant. The crucifix is two-sided and heavy, silver on bras, heavily plated, cast from an antique mold. This rosary will last a lifetime and can be passed from generation to generation.
