There is a new traditional hand chained rosary in my Etsy shop. It is made from solid 20 gage German silver wire, and is durable and made to last.
The Ave (Hail Mary)beads on this full sized rosary are 8mm Blue Lace Agate beads and the Pater (Our Father) beads are jewelry quality 12 mm Blue Chalcedony beads. I've included a close up photo of the beads so you can see the soft blue banding on the Blue Lace beads, and the translucent deep blue beauty of the Blue Chalcedony beads.The crucifix is a reproduction of an antique piece and is made in Italy. The center connector medal, for me the "heart" of the rosary, is Our Lady of Guadalupe. This one of a kind rosary is a full 24 inches in length and has a nice weight when held in your hand...
All while making my prayer beads and rosaries i continuously send healing Reiki energy into the stones, glass and metal i am working with. Glass, stone and metal are excellent conductors and transmitters of energy.
Here's some Crystal Lore about the stones used in the rosary:
Blue Lace Agate has a gentle energy and is known as a calming stone. It is said to bring tranquility and aids in prayer and meditation(making it the perfect stone for a rosary) Blue Lace Agate helps one speak their truth, and is a stone of communication. It works with the throat chakra.
Blue Chalcedony brings balance to body, mind and Spirit, and aids in mental and emotional peace. This stone also works with the throat chakra as well as the crown chakra...
