About this Heirloom Rosary
The Avé Maria beads are 8mm in size, and the paters are 9mm. The paters are highlighted by antique brass bead caps with elegant scroll detailing. The centrepiece is what gave this rosary it's name. A absolutely stunning openwork of the intertwining letters "A&M" for Avé Maria, finished with a regal crown at the very top. The crucifix, equally as stunning with it's openwork lattice design completes this elegant rosary.
Both the centre and crucifix are vintage reproductions. Using the unaltered original, these components have been re-cast by hand using the lost wax method. Following their casting, a patina is applied by hand, highlighting their gorgeous details and restoring these vintage parts to their original beauty.
My wire wrapped rosaries are expertly handcrafted with high quality brass wire that has been antiqued and polished by hand in my workshop prior to construction. I do this to ensure a consistent look between the wire and components in order to complete the look and feel of this vintage style piece.
A gorgeous heirloom rosary honoring the Queen of Heaven.
