Greenstone & Brass Catholic Rosary, Handmade in New Zealand
This full-size handsome rosary is made by me, Deborah, with nephrite jade (greenstone) beads, Swarovski crystals and antiqued gold accents. The Miraculous Medal center and filigree crucifix are both cast from brass.
I've made this rosary using a linked construction technique in which each bead is separately linked together with brass rosary wire. This gives a larger rosary like this one very nice flow through your hands in use, and is a sturdy way of making a rosary that is suitable for rugged hands and years of prayer.
The 5 decades of Hail Mary beads are 8mm round greenstone. The Our Father beads are larger at 10mm round, and are finished with ornately detailed antiqued gold pewter end caps and small Swarovski crystals. I've wire-wrapped these beads to provide extra strength where needed most.
Length when hanging: 58cm / 22.75 inches;
Center medal: 2.5cm tall;
Crucifix: 5.5cm / 2.2 inches tall.
This is an heirloom quality rosary that carries my lifetime guarantee (as all my rosaries do). It comes in a handmade cotton pouch to store it in and will be attractively packaged.
