Anglican Rosary, Blue Swarovski Pearls, Gold Cross
A beautiful Christian rosary made with pale blue Swarovski® pearls, faceted crystal beads and a gold plate filigree cross. Lovely for praying or for gifting - or a Christian wedding gift (beautiful draped in the bride's bouquet).
I've chosen 8mm round soft blue Swarovski® pearls for the prayer beads in the rosary, the finest crystal pearls on the market today. The cruciform & invitatory beads are clear faceted Czech crystal beads held between two wee blue pearls. All the pearls are hand-linked with gold rosary wire, and the crystal beads are wire-wrapped to give that unique handmade look to the rosary.
Fine gold-plate chain separates the crystal beads from the sets of pearls and a pretty gold filigree cross completes the rosary.
The Anglican rosary is made up of thirty-three beads representing the years of Christ's life, divided into four groups of seven called weeks. Between each week is a single bead called a cruciform bead. The 33rd bead is the invitatory bead, a place to begin the prayer time and the cross completes the set.
Length: approx 50cm (20") from center back to end of the cross.
Loop: approx 38cm (15") from back to center = 76cm (30") around the loop.
Cross: 3cm x 2.25cm (1.2" x 0.9").
The rosary comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton pouch to keep it in. A pamphlet about the Anglican rosary is included.
