Mother's Rosary Bracelet, Saint Monica Medal
Made with 8mm round midnight blue goldstone beads for the Hail Marys and a single 10mm round for the Our Father prayer bead, the bracelet features a medal of Saint Monica. This 4th century Christian saint was the mother of Saint Augustine and knew her fair share of despair over the path in life her son chose to take.
I've placed a wee blue and gold teardrop glass bead next to the medal - I think all mothers have shed a tear or two for their children!
Monica's answer to her sorrow was prayer, and her prayers were answered. For 32 years Monica prayed for her son Augustine! And her prayers were answered in a way that satisfied her mother's heart to overflowing and brought great benefit to people of faith everywhere. Today St Monica's patronages include married women (she herself was a widow), and she is a role model for Christian motherhood. For mothers who despair for their children, Saint Monica's story offers hope and comfort.
The blue goldstone are finished with tiny gold-plated bead caps and are separated with light sapphire blue Swarovski crystals. The mix of light and blue colors with gold accents is very pretty.
