Past and present - a beautiful combo! August 20, 2016 15:08 2 Comments

Loving combining the beautiful designs found in rosaries from the past with today's materials!

Our Lady of Lourdes Rosary

The Renaissance Era included some really intricate metalwork in rosaries, with beautiful filigree and layers of decoration around the beads, especially the Our Father & Glory Be beads, as well as ornate crosses and crucifixes.
Rosaries were frequently worn as necklaces or at the belt in that period, so rosaries were for display as well as prayer. In some societies a rosary showed the social status of the wearer or the wearer's level of "devoutness" might be shown by the size of the rosary.
