Baby's Baptism Rosary, Blue Swarovski® Pearl Catholic Rosary
A lovely rosary for a baby boy made with pale blue and pure white Swarovski® pearls teamed with bright gold. The rosary has a center medal with an image of a baby in a crib and the Holy Spirit descending from above - just right for baby's first rosary, and an ideal gift from godparents or family members at the baptism.
I've used 6mm round blue Swarovski® pearls for the Hail Mary beads, and slightly larger 8mm round pearls in pure white for the Our Father beads between the decades. All the pearls are linked by hand with gold rosary wire, making a strong rosary that will last for many years of prayer. The Our Father beads are finished with tiny blue opal Swarovski® crystals and are wire-wrapped to give that unique handmade look to the rosary.
In the center of the rosary is a sweet image of a baby in a crib with the Holy Spirit above. The rosary begins and ends with a gold-plated pewter traditional crucifix which has 3 pointed lily designs at the end of the arms. The 3 points are usually taken to be a reference to the Holy Trinity - God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Another meaning is the the 12 points taken together represent the 12 Apostles.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 48cm / 19 inches
Center medal: 1.5cm / 0.6 inch
Crucifix: 4cm / 1.6 inches
A lovely rosary which is bound to become a treasured heirloom. It will arrive in a handmade (by me) lined cotton rosary pouch and be attractively wrapped.
