  I've been very very busy making hats, scarves, cowls and shawls for the little shop i sell them in, in downtown Troy NY. (Artcentric) Since the temps have dropped severely here AND Black Friday and Troy Night Out are happening on the same day/night(today/tonight) i put down my pliers and slowed my rosary production to a halt. But i did manage to add this sweet little chaplet to the shop.
It's a wire wrapped piece made with 8mm turquoise beads and antique reproduction bronze medals
The beads are stabilized for strength(turquoise can be fragile without stabilization) and they have some soft brown matrix veining in them...So pretty especially next to the bronze metal
The connector is a scrolled real bronze piece, with a little dove holding an olive branch in it's beak
The reproduction medal has Our Lady on one side
and St Anthony on the other side. This would make a nice Christmas gift. Check it out here
New posts about Thanksgiving, baking and a special Holiday play with a new budding actress coming soon!
