New at and Silver!


Every so often, I make a 'Ultimate' Rosary--one with the best and most beautiful beads and components I have. Nothing is spared to make this the finest Rosary I can make. And this is one of them.
The Pearls are large 8-9mm freshwater, AA+ on a AAA scale. They miss being AAA as they are not perfectly matched, and not perfectly round--this is essential for necklaces, but not so important when separated as they are in a Rosary--and it keeps the price out of the stratosphere.
The Paters are peach Coral, made from sustainable white Coral, and are double capped with heavy, handmade Bali beads. The Aves are capped as well, also in Bali beadcaps.
Even the connectors use Bali spacers flanked with smallpeach Pearls. And everything is wire wrapped twice at each end for a Rosary so strong it is guaranteed for life against breakage--there are no rings to come apart or flimsy, thin wiring to break!
The Crucifix was inspired by Medieval pictures, and features Jesus on one side, and Madonna and Child on the other. It is beautifully rendered, with lots of fine detail.
The center is one of my favorites--hand cast, as is the Crucifix--of the Blessed Mother.
The Rosary drapes beautifully and is silky smooth. Like all wire wraps, this is longer than the cable or link Rosaries due to the nature of the wire wrap. Large Pearls and Paters add to the length (32 inches).
As always, it will come boxed in silver and a velvet and organza, beaded bag.
