Paters (Our Father beads) of 8mm smooth round clear quartz rock crystal and Aves (Hail Mary beads) of 6mm faceted charcoal grey crystal create a striking contrast in this attractive handcrafted rosary.
Each crystal is hand wrapped with tarnish resistant silver plated wire using the traditional Rosary wire wrapping technique.
This technique involves passing a length of wire through the bead and wrapping it back around itself on each side of the bead to form a loop at each end. The next wire is passed through this loop before wrapping it around a bead. This method ensures there is no opening or weak link in the loops to allow the rosary to come apart. It is the most secure method of rosary making.
The centerpiece medal is an exquisite 25mm colour depiction of a boy or girl receiving their First Holy Communion (choose your center medal from the above menu). Finished with a pewter arched design crucifix measuring 4.5cm by 2.5cm.
Your Rosary will arrive wrapped in layers of tissue paper in a beautiful gift box. You will also receive an organza bag to protect your rosary while carrying it and an information booklet giving the history of the rosary and how to use your rosary beads.
