Stella Maris Rosary, Star of the Sea
This handmade Catholic Stella Maris rosary has pale blue Swarovski® shimmer pearls for the Hail Mary beads, silver pewter shells for the Our Father prayer beads & includes a medal of Our Lady, Star of the Sea.
Our Lady Star of the Sea (Stella Maris) is one of the Virgin Mary's names. Stella Maris is seen as a sign of hope and as a guiding star for Christians, especially those who love the oceans of the world - but equally as much for those who "sail the seas of life".
The pearls are linked into the rosary by hand with silver-plated rosary wire, and the shell beads are wire-wrapped to give extra strength where needed. This rosary will last for many years of prayer.
The center medal is the much-loved Miraculous Medal of Our Lady. The crucifix is a "radiant" style with a burst of light behind the figure of Christ, signifying His resurrection. A Stella Maris medal hangs alongside, together with a medal of Our Lady of My Carmel and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Under the name Stella Maris, the Virgin Mary is believed to intercede as a guide and protector of those who travel or seek their livelihoods on the sea. This would also be a lovely wedding rosary for anyone traveling or marrying near the sea, or with a special affinity for the oceans of the world.
Length from mid-back to end of cross: 58cm (22.75")
Crucifix: 5cm (2")
Beads: 8mm Swarovski pearls, 15mm silver-plated shell beads.
This full-size rosary comes in a handmade (by me) cotton rosary bag to keep it in, and will be attractively wrapped.
