Rosary #5 • Thu, Nov 4, 2010

This is the rosary that I made for my Mom, Meredith, for my birthday (yeah, my birthday). I've always felt a certain level of appreciation for my Mother on my birthday. The centerpiece says "Saint Agatha Pray for Us." Saint Agatha is the patron saint of nurses and breast cancer patients. I also hung a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon from the center piece. The 53 Hail Mary beads are rose colored Swarovski beads from Austria. Mom's birthstone is the diamond, so I used crystal glass beads (which look similar to diamonds) for the 6 Our Father beads. My Mom passed away two years later, so now my daughter has it.
