A Handmade Rosary
#1
It’s been a couple years since I’ve made gemstone rosaries but decided to gift myself with one for Christmas-‘cause no one else cares.

The Hail Mary beads are 6mm variety of Jasper (idiotic “trade name” is something like “African Turquoise”) and the Our Father beads are mahogany-colored Obsidian. Includes medals of 2 of my more favorite Saints (St. John of the Cross and St. Catherine of Siena) and the cross is the “Pardon” crucifix. 

May its beauty bring joy to whoever. Merry Christmas to myself and others, or whatever.

Very nice.  Good detail work.

I saw the title of this thread again, but read it this time as "Handmaid Rosary." All I could think of was those stupid white bonnets interspersed by large, red beads.

I made a rosary too, recently. Huge wooden beads, with an elongated bead for the crucifix, “wrapped” with a long strand of yarn. I’m planning to restring it on some thick cord, but yarn was all I had in the hospital, and I was super lucky to get that, since ordinarily we’re not supposed to have any string. The yarn is really pretty though, and I’m going to hang the rosary on my wall (it’s that big!).
