New Rosaries

  For the last few months i can do nothing else with my free time, than make rosaries, prayer beads and chaplets. It's all i want to do right now, so i'm going with it!
 This full size rosary is devoted to St Jude. I prayed to him a LOT when i was a girl, and it seemed like he always listened. It is both hand chained and the Pater beads are wire wrapped to make them stand out from the Ave beads.
 The Ave beads are a nice earthy Jasper and the Pater beads are Hematite.
 You can see the different wire works in this picture...
 This little pocket rosary is a Three Hail Marys Chaplet
This little chaplet is called Mary's Garden, and it is all wire wrapped and has bronze components
 This is another wire wrapped chaplet in bronze and the beads are Chinese Rhodonite.
This little rosary is non traditional. It's a devotional to Quan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion and Mercy...I love Quan Yin...
And last, but not least, this one is called Mary of the Snows, made of bronze, wire wrapped, and the stones are crackle quartz, which to me looks like ice. They are all waiting in the shop here!
