This one decade rosary is truly a bouquet of roses! It is my creative intrepretation of a shower of roses…the roses spill down from the top, as graces flowing from heaven. It is also a nod to my Confirmation patroness, St. Therese and to my shop name. The roses are large, measuring 20cm across. Length of rosary from midpoint to end of crucifix is 11.5 inches. The center and crucifix are a burnished bright gold, and the center is a beautiful image of the Sacred Heart, with Our Lady on the back. I used 20 gauge gold wire to hand-wrap each bead. Hand-wrapping, in addition to adding an element of beauty, guarantees no breakage between beads.
