Madonna Pocket Rosary, Decima Rosary - White Pearls
This single-decade rosary has lovely olde-worlde charm, with cream Swarovski® pearls and antiqued brass medals. A lovely small rosary for any Catholic woman.
I've used 8mm round Swarovski® pearls in cream for the loop of 10 Hail Mary beads, which meets at a small brass center medal of the Virgin Mary with the Divine Mercy on the back. In the front extension is a single Our Father bead, which is a wee pearl in a antiqued brass frame.
The rosary begins and ends with a medal of the Madonna, accompanied by a tiny 'grapes & vine' crucifix. Crucifixes with a vine design symbolize the Christian’s union with Christ, as related in John 15: 1-8. “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15: 4-5).
Length from mid-back to end of medal: 19.5cm / 7.7 inches
Medal: 1.8cm / 0.7 inch across
This small pocket rosary comes attractively wrapped so it is a treat to open, or so it is ready for gifting.
