The focal point of this rosary are the handmade lampwork Our Father beads. These beads are comprised of silver and gold foil encased in bright red-orange transparent glass. Because they are handmade, no two beads are exactly alike. Some may have minor imperfections from the creation process. This is to be expected with handmade items and adds to the charm of a handcrafted item. The Hail Mary beads are 6mm bright red orange man made rock crystal beads. These beads look red in some light and orange in other types of light. The center of the rosary honors Our Lady of Guadalupe whose feast day is December 12. The reverse side honors St Juan Diego. Both the center and the crucifix are silver colored metal, the wire is fine silver plated onto copper.
