Linking up with my friends at Suscipio – It’s Show and Tell time! Like Tiffany, I have a hoard…every time I see interesting beads or stones, I immediately think of how they will look as a rosary! I give lots of them away, especially the bracelet rosaries, and have the ones I keep scattered all through my life. You know, one in the purse, several in the cars, one on the bed table, tucked in drawers.
This one is a favorite. Several years ago I scored a tremendous deal on rose quartz at a trunk show, and there were enough beads to make three pink rosaries. The other two reside with Princess Pea and her best friend, aka my Other Daughter. I think about the girls every time I pick it up.
One of my rosary bracelets…wore it to work today! The beads are amethyst, and the cross on it was a necklace that belonged to Cherry Ames when she was a little girl. She outgrew the tiny chain years ago, and it hung in my jewelry box for years until I repurposed it.
This is one I started for The Architect, but he requested a single decade that would fit in his pocket, so I reclaimed it. The beads are hematite, so even though they are small, this rosary has a nice weight and it feels nice and cool in my hands. (Note: I just realized…if you click the picture to open it and zoom in close, you can see the outline of me and the camera reflected in each bead! Hematite is such a fun gemstone!)
Pray the Rosary. Keep the Faith.
