About this Heirloom Rosary
Lapis lazuli is one of my most popular and most requested stones. The blue is so vibrant and striking. The lapis on this rosary is natural, not dyed or enhanced. The Avé Maria beads are 8mm, and the paters 10mm.
The paters are capped with openwork antique brass beadcaps, that mirror the openwork of the Immaculate Heart centrepiece. I have added something a little extra on the bead caps. If you look very closely at the pater beads, you can see the beads topped with brass hearts (see photo #5) Just a little bit of extra detailing for this gorgeous Immaculate Heart rosary.
The centrepiece is a large openwork frame surrounding the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Please note the size of the centrepiece and crucifix. This is not a small rosary. The crucifix is just shy of 3 inches, and has very fine detailing. 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.
This is a stunning heirloom rosary. It is suitable for either a gentleman or lady who prefers the feel of a larger size rosary.
Perfect for anyone with special devotion to Mary's Immaculate Heart.
