Carmelite Rosary, 6 Decade, Bronze Miraculous Medal
I've made this 6 decade Carmelite rosary with a bronze crucifix and center connector known as the Miraculous Medal of Our lady. Made with smaller-size Czech glass beads in earthy tones, this rosary is as lovely to look at as it is to pray with. This style of rosary is also called the Brigittine rosary.
The Carmelite rosary looks similar to a regular Rosary, but with an extra decade. The 7 Pater beads honor the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the 63 Ave Maria beads commemorate the 63 years it is believed the Blessed Mother lived on this earth before her Assumption.
The rosary loop connects with a bronze center medal, which is known as the Miraculous Medal or the medal of the Immaculate Conception. The bronze crucifix is a popular "grapes and vine" style.
The beads are all separately linked with bronze rosary wire, and the Pater beads are wire-wrapped so the rosary has that unique handmade look. The beads are smallish at 6mm round, so the rosary is quite lightweight & compact and flows smoothly through your hands.
Length from center-back to end of crucifix: 48.5cm / 19 inches
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8 inch
Crucifix: 4cm / 1.6 inches
This rosary comes in a handmade (by me) lined rosary pouch to keep it in, and will be attractively packaged.
