Roses & Hearts Pocket Rosary, Pope Francis Medal Center
This pretty pocket rosary is both a pleasure to use and lovely to look at. Well-made for regular personal use with lampwork glass beads that enclose pink roses, it would make an attractive and thoughtful gift.
The beads are larger than somet of my rosaries - great for people who prefer a more substantial feel in the hands. I've chosen 12mm lampwork glass beads for the Hail Marys, each bead has wee pink roses enclosed in the glass and a faceted surface. The Our Father bead is raspberry-pink Czech glass, finished with flower caps and wee sparkling Swarovski crystals.
The crucifix has hearts at the ends of the arms, representing Christ's great love and sacrifice. The center medal show Pope Francis on the front and his Papal coat of arms on the back.
The beads are each hand-linked with silver rosary wire, which means the rosary flow nicely through your fingers. The Our Father bead is wire-wrapped for extra strength and to give this little rosary that unique handmade look.
Length: 24cm / 9.5 inches
Center medal: 1.5cm / 0.6 inch

This lovely pocket rosary is perfect for shorter prayer times and to carry with you in a pocket or purse. It will come attractively packaged to complete the treat.
