Rosary #12 • Sun, May 6, 2018

My sister-in-law, Carly, asked me to make this rosary for my niece, Mallory, for her First Holy Communion on May 12. The Hail Mary beads are Swarovski pearl (8mm). I've used these beads before, they're great to work with and that have a neat shine to them. The Our Father beads are hand-crafted from rose petals. This is the first time I've worked with rose petal beads. They're a little different to work with, and they leave the rosary with a very unique and traditional look. The centerpiece features a young person with a guardian angel and the inscription "My Guardian Angel Protect Me". This is great for a child; it reminds me of bedtime prayers. The crucifix features four hearts. The crucifix, centerpiece, and chain are all sterling silver.
