"You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters."
-- Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Epistle 106


Each Trinity-form end of this openwork crucifix encloses a lily, symbolic of the Resurrection. The crucifix is solid bronze, and hand-cast; the original comes from the Philippines.

The marvelous Pater beads are made of various types of wood — in free-form, flattened and elongated ovals — each unique. They're made of reclaimed timbers, or of wood fallen to the forest floor. Alongside all the Paters are cylindrical beads of wood and beads of solid brass.

The striped Aves are unfinished, natural fir. Among the Aves are small handmade wood beads, slightly varied in size, in many shades of brown.

All the connecting rings are solid bronze.

This rosary is made all-in-one-loop, rather than in the familiar "Y" form. We don't see lots of all-one-loop rosaries lately, but they were pretty much the norm until just a couple centuries ago.

Crucifix: 2.25"
Aves: 8mm
Length: about 16.5" from top of loop to bottom of crucifix
