These Rosary Beads have been one of my all time favourite Rosaries to make! It had been the first ever time I was contacted by someone who had a sentimental necklace, given to her by her husband, that had broken and wanted to repurpose it as a Rosary.
I was absolutely delighted to assist, and it allowed me to work with some beautiful beads that had already shared many years of love, both in the couples marriage and in their hearts and souls as a Catholic Family. I had never worked with pearls of this size before, and only ever freshwater pearls so it was also a blessing to be asked to work with these beautiful beads!
The result was stunning, and a true work with prayer and Our Blessed Mother's guidance. The Pater Nosters were not part of the original necklace but are simple 10mm blue glass beads flanked with silver plated copper Bead caps which, over time, will wear slightly with prayer. I know that the owner of this Rosary is likely to 'wear it out' but can also be confident that the links are strong and durable and she will be able to pass this Rosary on in her family for generations to come!
