Carmelite Rosary, 6 Decade Bronze Sacred Heart Rosary
I've made this 6 decade Carmelite rosary with a bronze crucifix and center connector showing the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Made with Czech faceted glass beads in lovely mossy, 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. I've used Czech glass beads for these again, this time coin-shaped imprinted with a star motif.
The rosary loop connects with a center medal of a radiant cross with the Sacred Heart on the back. The bronze crucifix has a lily decoration on the arms & a smooth back. Both pieces are high quality with excellent detail.
The beads are all separately linked with bronze rosary wire, and the Pater beads are finished with tiny Swarovski crystals and then wire-wrapped so the rosary has that unique handmade look. The beads are smallish at 7mm round, so the rosary is quite lightweight and flows smoothly through your hands.
Length from center-back to end of crucifix: 57cm / 22.5 inches
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8 inch
Crucifix: 4.5cm / 1.75 inches
This rosary comes in a handmade (by me) lined rosary pouch to keep it in, and will be attractively packaged.
