Traditional Black Glass Rosary, Saint Benedict Center
Saint Benedict features in the center medal of this traditional Catholic rosary. Handmade with brass rosary wire, medal and crucifix this rosary has timeless appeal that would suit men, women or children.
I've used 8mm faceted black Czech glass beads for the Hail Marys, each bead hand-linked with brass rosary wire. This makes a sturdy rosary construction that drapes well through the hands, and will last for a lifetime of prayerful use.
The beads are finished in a process called "fire polished" which means they are heated to a very high degree, giving them a nice shine and light reflection, as well has softening any sharp edges.
The Our Father and Glory Be beads are saturn-shaped beads, black glass with a band of frosting. I've wire-wrapped these beads to provide extra strength where needed, and also to give the rosary that unique handmade appearance.
Length when hanging: 46cm / 18 inches
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8 inches
Crucifix: 4cm tall / 1.6 inches
This well-made rosary is designed for regular personal use and would make a thoughtful gift. It is covered by my lifetime guarantee and comes in a handmade (by me) lined rosary pouch to keep it in.
